Me and my mates are looking to do our first bit of exploring Saturday and wanted to know if anyone had any places in Essex that are good. Preferably as close to Southend on sea as possible.

Hi we are also from Essex and newbies.
We've found a few places to explore.
By goggle but mainly just by driving and walking around.
