    Harwich, an historic maritime port has many associations with famous characters, including Samuel Pepys and of course Christopher Jones, Master of the Mayflower who sailed to America in 1620 with some of the very first ‘Adventurers and Pilgrims’. Other attractions worth visiting include the Redoubt Fort, a circular fort built in 1808 to protect the harbour from a Napoleonic invasion, the Electric Palace Cinema, the oldest unaltered purpose built cinema in Britain and still going strong, and the Mayflower exhibition, housed in the old ticket office on the Pier. Free guided walks of the town are available from here in the summer months (see the Harwich Society link above).
    The neighbouring town of Dovercourt (5 minute taxi ride) offers a small but varied shopping centre, and the town boasts a Blue Flag Award for its beaches with boating lake, roller skating rink, putting green, beach cafe (with bouncy castle and childs play area) and amusement arcade along the seafront.
