Clacton offers seaside retirement

Clacton offers seaside retirement

The seaside town of Clacton could be the perfect destination for those looking to retire by the coast.

Home to around 53,000 people, the Essex town has lots of attractions for people hoping to move away from busy city living and enjoy some fresh air.

In addition to the sea, Clacton has plenty to entertain those who have plenty of leisure time to fill.

The town also boasts two theatres - the Princes and West Cliff - they both feature a varied programme of events that will appeal to many - they could also prove a great venue for some volunteer work as well.

Local residents can enjoy the large number of pubs, clubs and restaurants in the town to suit all budgets.

Clacton has a popular shopping area, with many national chains such as WH Smiths and Next, as well as a number of supermarkets to meet day-to-day needs so people do not need to travel far on a regular basis.

For more sporting pursuits, Clacton has a golf course, which may be the perfect place for those who are looking to take up a new hobby and find an excuse to stay fit, as well as have the opportunity to make some new friends and continue socialising. The 40-acre course offers a special golfing school for those hoping to improve their handicap.

There are a number of other attractions close by, including a nature reserve, which is popular with bird watchers, as it offers the chance to spot many of the different species that are local to the area.

Another benefit of buying property for sale in Clacton is the strong transport links from the town, which allows residents to easily travel to the capital by the regular train services.

One of the major highlights of the Clacton calendar is the annual Clacton Carnival and Clacton Airshow, which features an aerial display involving historic aircraft, including the Lancaster Bomber, Spitfires, helicopters and the Red Arrows.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801736704-ADNFCR
