It’s the summer holidays and I’m sure your children have already told you they are bored. Entertaining them in the six weeks holiday isn’t easy. August is an expensive month as it is, with new uniforms and shoes. Let’s not mention the food you go through! Any days out have to be budgeted for. This year the cost of living crisis is adding to the stress that August can bring for families. Living in Colchester we love being able to jump in the car to visit the sea. But the cost of petrol is putting a stop to that. Thankfully Hedingham & Chambers have launched a new Group Ticket that is perfect for the summer season. It makes visiting the Tendring Coast by bus an affordable option for any summer holiday adventures.
The Hedingham & Chambers Group Ticket
The new group tickets replace the Hedingham & Chambers family tickets. This means that, no matter what their age, any group of up to five people can travel by bus for a discounted price. Five people can travel on Hedingham & Chambers’ Clacton Rocks service for just £6.40. If you want to travel that little bit further the Seasiders route will be available for a total of £11 until the 3rd of September.
Make sure you have the Hedingham & Chambers App downloaded to find the best value tickets. It also helps with speedy boarding on the buses.
Tendring Coast By Bus
The Seasiders Route
The Seasiders route connects the Tendring coast by bus. It gives you the chance to enjoy a day at the beach. You can take your pick from Clacton-on-Sea, Frinton-on-Sea or even Walton-on-the-Naze. Not to mention West or East Mersea, high tides permitting.
If you want to go further afield you could go on a maritime adventure in Harwich or even explore Maldon. If you are looking for some retail therapy you can visit Colchester Town. There are some great places to visit on this route too including
- The East Anglian Railway Museum
- Colne Valley Railway
- Colchester Castle
- Colchester Castle Park
- Colchester Zoo
- Tiptree Jame Museum and Tea Room
- Highwoods Country Park
If you are on holiday in the area and want to use the bus all week there is a new Seasiders Group Weekly Ticket. £42 will let a group of up to five people travel by bus for the whole week.
The Clacton Rocks Route
The Clacton Rocks route is perfect if you want to stay local to the Clacton area. It connects many of the resort’s top attractions. It also gives you the opportunity to ride the Clacton Breeze open-top bus tour.
There are lots of fun things to do in Clacton. Clacton Pavilion is home to rides, a water park and the upside-down house. Clacton Pier is also worth a visit. It is home to great soft play, mini golf and even bowling. Hiring a beach hut for the day also gives you a different beach day experience.
If you are arriving at Clacton by train, Hedingham & Chambers offer a £1 single fare from Clacton Rail Station into Clacton Town Centre. Making the final journey to the beach that little bit easier.
