Why not take a tour of Jaywick

We'll show you the sights and sounds of this great place and all for free...

For those of you that are energetic, or can't move from the computer, why not take our audio tour or one of our internet tours? Otherwise print out and take the guide with you on your walk.

The audio tour is simple, just download an MP3 file and a map, and then playback on your phone or MP3 player whilst wandering around Jaywick. Also by using Google Maps we have put together three DIY mapped tours on the internet with pictures and decriptions of places to see. Just navigate your way around by clicking on the points of interest. You can use the mouse to drag the map around and zoom in and out using the slider at the top left. You can also view these tours in Google Earth (you'll need to register and download the program first, but then just click the link in the maps saying "View in google earth"). 

Tour 1 - Walking away from Jaywick

This is a circular tour around taking about 4-5 hours to walk (about 10.5 miles). The walk immerses us in the marshes, their flora and fauna.  Our recommended start is from the Car Park on Tamarisk Way in Jaywick but as its circular you can start from anywhere.
