We love going for a hike along the sea wall, then sitting in the Jolly sailor having a well earned drink. Atmosphere is great and a warm welcome invites us all. Kids love to sit outside with a snack or two just a FAB day out

I regularly walk along the canal and seat wall to Goldhanger and Tollesbury from the basin. It is a beautiful place that really has everything for a relaxing day. The views across the estuary are beautiful and the further you walk along the the sea wall the more peaceful it becomes. There is plenty of wildlife to see with a... More

A place to go if you have never been there. A lovely walk along the old canal and sea wall, with lots of boats and things to see including the lock that goes out to the sea. Couple of pubs with good food and drink. Plus a café on the waters edge, also serves food.

They have a covered over outside area ideal if you are out for a dog walk. Food lovely for a pub. Will return and often do when out walking.

One of my favourite spots for a scenic, leg-stretching circuit - turn right out the (free, yay!) carpark, walk along the narrow footpath along the canal until you come to the road, pop over the bridge, bear left through an industrial area and housing development, and then pick up the path in a more open expanse with views across the...

We walked around by the lock area and had tea in a little cafe then walked along the canal. Lovely to see the boats all moored up and will be back to walk further along the trail

This is a nice spot for lunch or a walk on a sunny day. There is a choice of two pubs and a Wilkins tea room if you fancy something to eat.
