How to get there

Train. To Burnham-on-Crouch Station. You have to change at Wickford for a train to London Liverpool Street, however the connection is normally good and less than a 4 minute wait.

Car. Leave the A130 at Wickford/ South Woodham Ferrers and proceed on the A132 Burnham Road through a series of roundabouts. Join the B1012 with stunning views of the Crouch estuary, and stay on this road through the famous Burnham bends much loved by motorcyclists until you reach the T juncyion in Burnham. Turn right, go over the railway bridge past the Coop supermarket and turn right down Foundry Lane, just after the last bend turn sharp left into the upper carpark. Steps down to the hard are available and next to the Harbour Masters Office (Flags flting) is a gate for pedestrian access to the pontoons head for AB as Scarlett is on the AB Hammerhead.   

About the area

Number One attraction is the Mangapps Railway Museum, 3.21km away.

Most people like to promenade on the Waterfront with its choice of English Public Houses, Breakfast, tea and coffee bars, yacht clubs and watch the yacht races on the River. Excellent Choice of Restaurants I would recommend the Oyster Smack Inn, The Old White Harte Hotel and The Ship (In the High where you will also find two Indian restaurants, one Thai, numerous coffee shops and take-aways, at least two other public houses and The Rio cinema. 

If you want to get away from it all and the country park alongside the Marina is not enough, then take the Ferry across the Crouch from the Marina and visit the RSPB Nature reserve on Wallersea island, wildfowl are especially good in the winter. Essex Marina (where you get off the ferry on the South bank) has the Yacht Club restaurant open to the Public.

    Lovely stay on the boat

    Lovely stay on the boat. Beautiful views over the water and sunsets. Easy walk in to town past the houseboats. Nice choice of pubs and restaurants.
    Handy for the station. Thank you!

    Highly recommend!

    She is a fabulous boat - very well equipped and comfortable. The area is lovely - great walks and local amenities. Lovely to sit on the deck watching the sunset. Steve could not be more helpful.
