Escape more often with your Explorer Pass

Simply spending time outdoors improves your wellbeing. At Essex Country Parks and places there is plenty of space for the children to just run around, and plenty to explore.

Make dens and kick through the autumn leaves, build sandcastles and go fossil hunting, spot wildlife and go bird spotting, discover the Gruffalo and Stick man trails, or rise above it all with the Sky Ropes at Great Notley.

Your Explorer Pass will give you and your family the freedom to explore some of the incredible places and green spaces that Essex has to offer, as many times as you like throughout the year.

Your pass will entitle you to:

  • Car Parking at 7 country parks for a whole year – Belhus Woods, Cudmore Grove, Danbury, Great Notley, Hadleigh, Thorndon and Weald.
