The small village of Steeple is a short drive from this holiday park. If you need somewhere a little more substantial, then Southminster is only about a 10-minute drive away. From here, you can also get trains into London, if you fancy a day out in the capital, taking in the sights.
About 20 minutes by car from Steeple Bay Holiday Park is South Woodham Ferrers. A good sized town, there's a leisure centre and cinema which are great for days out, especially if the weather isn't so great.
Also about a 20-minute drive from this site is the ancient town of Maldon. It's got a nice mix of high street shops, chain shops, and quirky independents. It sits on the Blackwater Estuary and if you head down there, you can see people working on and sailing old boats – and there are riverside pubs and places to buy an ice cream, too.
Alternatively, you can visit Chelmsford, about a 40-minute drive away. It's a great place for shopping, plus there's the cathedral, an ice rink, a sports centre, a cinema, plenty of places to eat and drink, as well as a faster train link to London. Or visit Colchester. It's about a 50-minute drive away, but the lure of the zoo might be enough for some to make the journey, plus this Roman town has a castle, as well as historic walls and gates to take in.
