But why move to Clacton rather than somewhere slightly larger such as Colchester or Chelmsford? Clacton is a traditional seaside town and was once a sought after holiday destination in Essex. The economy largely relies on tourism and many businesses would not survive if it was not for the busy spring and summer months. This could mean the employment opportunities are lower here. However, Clacton is just a stones throw from Colchester and is accessible via road or train. There is a train station in Clacton that will take you right into Colchester town centre, or directly to London Liverpool Street. Part of the appeal of somewhere like Clacton is the house prices and what you can get for your money.
When you decide to purchase a house, it’s not a spur of the moment thing. You would have been thinking about it and saving money for some time. As it is the most extravagant thing you’re likely to buy and you will want to settle there, you will naturally want to get as much as you can for your money. As towns and cities grow in popularity, unfortunately, the house prices go with it. Clacton-on-Sea is the perfect town to get more for less.
