As the largest town on the Essex Sunshine Coast, Clacton-on-Sea was a hugely important source of tourism and jobs during the reign of the ‘Great British Seaside’.
Like many other British seaside towns, it fell into decline following the rise of cheap packaged holidays abroad and lower airfares.
Clacton-on-Sea is showing strong signs of recovery however having recently been the subject of a £36m coast protection scheme which has protected coastal homes from rising tides and even led to the creation of new beaches.
Working in conjunction with private sector partners, Clacton-on-Sea has sought to revitalise fledgling local entertainment facilities and create new urban areas to eat and shop, while also maintaining the traditional character of the town.
A burgeoning arts scene is also developing with the transformation of the Jaywick Martello tower, a former fort against invasion, into an art and culture hub.
The town maintains good transport links with major working cities in Essex, including Colchester and Chelmsford, and London is only an hour and a half away by train.
It is perhaps the strength of the local community in Clacton on Sea itself however, which is testament to how infrastructure upgrades coupled with a thriving local business sector can rejuvenate the aspirations of a once dwindling but now thriving seaside town.
A plethora of entertainment venues and good local primary schools makes it a popular relocation destination among young families and retirees alike.
The average asking price for a property in Clacton-on-Sea, as of October 2019, was £224,744, according to property market site, Zoopla.
Over the past year, the average house price has gone up by 2.46% as more families and workers llok to move to Clacton-On-Sea. In terms of property types, flats in Clacton-on-Sea sold for an average of £134,154 and terraced houses for £178,118.
Good transport links to Colchester and rail connections to the capital have raised the town’s profile amongst disgruntled London commuters also with the possibility to snap up a starter flat for less than £100,000.
Clacton-on-Sea is home a host of good ranking primary schools, including Alton Park Junior, Oakwood infant and nursery, and Holland Park, as well as schools serving those with severe learning difficulties, such as Shorefields.
The town is also served by two secondary schools – Clacton Coastal Academy and Clacton County High School – both of which were rated as ‘Good’ in their most recent Ofsted inspections.
With more than 36 miles of coastline, award-winning beaches and seafront gardens there are no shortage of great places to take a pleasant beachside stroll or take out the kids for a day of fun on the beach.
Clacton-on-Sea itself is home to a pleasure pier, arcades, two theatres, a golf course and even an airfield offering pleasure flights.
Sporting a proud aviation history the town is host to the free annual Clacton Airshow, where you can see the Red Arrows fly over the pier, amongst other performances.
The town also plays host to several independent businesses and boutique shopping experiences range from art galleries to signature guitar shops. It’s not just the independents that are catered for either.
The Clacton Factory Outlet shopping village continues to popular with locals and visitors since it opened with several high street names and lots of discounted events, with up to 60% off in some instances.
