Walton-on-the-Naze: The perfect seaside settlement

Walton-on-the-Naze: The perfect seaside settlement

When you are looking for somewhere to live, many people around the UK will look towards things that give them either peace and quiet of rural areas or the sort of busy lifestyle associated with life in the city and the excitement that comes with this.

However, what is less common is looking for something that gives you the chance to experience the best of both worlds. Seaside towns are still popular with those who want to holiday in the UK, meaning they are serene for most of the year, while also giving you the chance to experience the booming summer trade each year when tourists descend.

Few places will be better for this than those you can discover when looking for property for sale in Walton-on-the-Naze. The Essex town is home to just 6,000 people year-round, but sees thousands of tourists each summer.

One of the biggest attractions in the town is its North Sea pier, the third longest of its kind in the UK.

Throughout the summer months, this is home to many attractions for tourists that locals can also enjoy. Funfair rides and amusement arcades illuminate the pier throughout the summer and make it a thriving place to visit.

However, for those seeking out a new hobby, it is also the perfect place throughout the year to sit and relax while casting out a line and indulging in some recreational fishing - highly popular in the area.

Other things residents can do to pass the time in Walton include such activities as visiting the local nature reserve. The peninsula on which the town sits is popular for migrating birds, making it a great place to spend a day.

On top of this, the locals in Walton can also rest assured that there is more than enough to see to pass the time. Why not indulge in a bit of history with the likes of the Naze Tower, a Hanoverian structure originally built to guide ships into the port, or the cliffs, the base of which is believed to be 54 million years old.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801604652-ADNFCR
