These days, when you ask someone about their knowledge of Essex, they are pretty much guaranteed to bring up a certain reality TV show. Although ITVBe’s The Only Way is Essex may have introduced the county to a new generation of visitors (and reinforced some rather unhelpful stereotypes) Essex has been on the map long before the cameras arrived. With many parts of the county in travelling distance of London, Essex is a popular commuter spot, which also boasts a very interesting history. In Cheltenham, you will find fascinating Roman ruins and the Norman-era Colchester Castle (complete with a museum to brush up on your historical knowledge), while over in Chelmsford there is the stunning Hylands House, originally built in the 18th century and surrounded by acres of parkland. Of course, there are also plenty of historical Essex wedding venues to match, with Essex being home to a wealth of country manors and estates that are well suited to grand, luxurious nuptials.
