There’s So Much To See And Do In Essex!


With V Festival arriving at Hylands Park this coming weekend, we know that a great deal of you will be enjoying a lot of live music along with a few cold ones. If however, you were one of the few who weren’t lucky enough to grab some tickets, we’re here to tell you all is not lost. Yes you may have to deal with the inevitable flood of sunshine filled photos of your friends who may be in the park enjoying the likes of Justin Bieber and Rihanna but there’s still plenty for you to enjoy! There may even be ample opportunity to hit back with a few fun Facebook selfies too!

We understand that not everyone may be footloose and fancy-free which means a family friendly event could be just what you need. This makes the annual Carnival Procession at Southend Sea Front the perfect event to enjoy. What’s more, it’s just a short drive from the Marygreen Manor, making it the perfect event for not only Essex residents, but our guests too. This annual event attracts a whopping 20,000 people and boasts well over 60 floats and acts so there really is something for everyone in the family, even the really young ones. The carnival will consist of colourful floats, drummers, live music, big costumes and dancers. You can also expect plenty of flag waving, bright lights and a brilliant atmosphere. What more could you want?

Not really your thing? Want something a little quieter and perhaps not so extravagant? Then why don’t you take a peek at the Classic and Vintage Car Show at Hedingham Castle? Not only will you be privy to some pretty stunning sights thanks to the stunning castle, but you’ll also get to enjoy a range of classic cars not often seen on the roads today. It’s the perfect day for those wanting to enjoy the views through the countryside on the way too. Head over to and you can grab 2-4-1 tickets to boot!

There’s always something to do when you’re staying at the Marygreen Manor that’s for sure!
