There's more to Essex than first meets the eye. Tucked away you'll find lots of hidden gems, from an ancient royal hunting forest to a stunning Tudor merchant's house. Where will you discover on your next visit?
Choose Bedfordshire for activity and exploration, peace and quiet, wildlife and beauty. Why not enjoy the view from the highest point in the county, Dunstable Downs, where you really can see for miles?
Over the border
In Hertfordshire you'll find Shaw's Corner, the home of playwright George Bernard Shaw; who 70 years ago was one of the most famous, most photographed and most quoted men in the world.
This month's 'photo of the month' goes to Kevin Green, for his stunning photograph of Northey Island in Essex. Why not see what other visitors have snapped this month? We'd love to see your pics too.
