Due to the current Corona virus outbreak, many attractions are delaying their 2020 season opening times and event organisers are cancelling or postponing their events.

While we will try to update the information on this site as much as possible, we cannot guarantee to have all the information we would like.

Therefore we urge you to check the latest information on the attraction or event's website or Facebook pages, and to contact them before travelling to avoid disappointment.

East Essex Aviation Museum 2020

Housed in the historic Martello Tower at Point Clear since its first opening to visitors in 1986. The Society was formed when interest grew locally in the recovery of a crashed P51 Mustang of the U.S. 479th Fighter Group in the sea off Clacton with the loss of the pilot’s life. The remains of this aircraft take pride of place along with a memorial to the pilot. The museum also houses a large collection of displays covering the major conflicts of the 20th century.
