A quiet and friendly pub, just outside the town centre, and the only pub we found a decent pint of real ale. Most pubs in town appeared to favour fizzy yellow drinks if you know what I mean. Anyway a few pints of Shepherd Neame's excellent beers for us here. Worth a visit.

Address: Marine Parade?
Those who like sandy beaches should enjoy the left part from the main entrance, as on the right part you'll find a beach with stones.

It should be almost heaven for children, as they can find there lots of atrractions for them: different swing, games, ice-cream, candies, etc. Everything is located on the long bridge to the sea near the main entrance.

Favorite thing: Clacton-on-Sea - the place where my birth certificate states I was born, so I suppose I got to say something positive about the place, although its not somewhere I bear great affection for!
But, the other most significant thing that has happened in Clacton, in my living memoory, is the building of the wind farm on the Gunfleet Sands, out at sea to the left of the pier...
Now, some folk are very ANTI these things & say they spoil the view - I have the absolute opposite view - now Clacton has a view worthy of coming to see!
Watching the turbines being erected, was the most interesting thing I've seen happen here, other than when the Red Arrows visit...
& since the offshore farms were completed - the primary array in 2010 & the secondary array in 2012 - I still find it fascinating to watch the blades turning, or at night, when each turbine is distinguished to shipping with its own navigation light...
Fondest memory: As I don't remember being born, then my best memory is sitting on 1 of the many benches along the paths to the left of the pier, early on a summer's day, when the tropical-looking plants here are in flower, perfect scent in the air, & the busy sound of a squadron of bees, & other pollinating insects, doing what such creatures do best...
It's just as good as the Riviera, but just such a shame, such sunny days are all too few & far between, & sometimes, as in 2012, not at all, now that the English summer is more like a monsoon season...
