WALTON ON THE NAZE Essex England. Walk along the seafront at sunset
Walton-on-the-Naze is a seaside town in Essex, England, on the North Sea coast

Welcome to this walk through Walton On The Naze which is north of Clacton and south of the port of Harwich. It has Frinton-on-Sea to the south, and is part of the parish of Frinton and Walton.

Walton-on-the-Naze is a family seaside resort with sandy beaches, seafront gardens, quaint narrow streets and fossil hunting. The pier is the second longest in England, offering fairground rides, ten pin bowling and sea angling. Just to the north is The Naze, an unspoilt headland of heath, salt marshes and sandy beaches - it's 70 feet high cliffs are being eroded away.

It is also the site of the 86 foot Octagonal Naze Tower which is currently used as a gallery which spreads across six floors and houses three exhibitions each year. Other features include a museum which details the history of the Naze Tower and tea rooms where you can stop and enjoy refreshments between different exhibitions.

Albion Beach, Walton on the Naze (Walton-on-the-Naze)
With one of the area’s best beaches and home of the UK’s second longest pier, Walton charms visitors of all ages. From beach activities to countryside walks, Walton has it all. Gently shelving beaches provide an ideal location for a day by the sea

In a region famous for its seaside towns, Walton-on-the-Naze still manages to stand out. It has all the classics: a soft-sand beach, shimmering arcades, fish ‘n’ chip shops and a vintage pier. But there are charming surprises too, like the Naze itself, a wide headland with towering red cliffs and a fossil-filled beach.

Search through the shingle along this ancient stretch of coast and you might uncover fossilised birds, plants and shark’s teeth. A mammoth’s tooth was even found here! Afterwards, take time to admire your newly discovered treasures with a coffee at the Naze Tower. This historic landmark is a gallery too and offers incredible scenery of the coast from the top.

Back in the resort, the traditional seaside sights beckon. Visit the pier, the second-longest in England, for quirky shops, sea angling and funfair rides or wander Walton-on-the-Naze’s narrow shopping streets for a choice of independent stores.

Today, the pier at Walton On The Naze remains a popular attraction, with amusements and funfair rides in a hangar-type building. Beyond this, the pier extends into a promenade popular with anglers.

The old lifeboat house on East Terrace in Walton-On-The-Naze dates from 1884: it now houses the Walton Maritime Museum. It was designed by C H Cooke and is a grade II listed building.
