About Essex

Let’s face it… exploring a new place can be hard.

With all the information out there these days, travellers need a reliable place where they can get unbiased, researched, and informative travel information all in one convenient place.

That said, the team at About Essex has made it our mission to provide you with the best, most actionable travel information on the internet. From real locals with real experiences who know what the best attractions are and what actually works when trying to find a good meal and activities.

Meet The Team

The team behind AboutEssex is made up of a collective of locals based in Essex.

We realized that pulling from a group of experienced locals is better than one running the show, which is why we’ve organized ourselves this way.

Each of our locals goes through a 3-step review process to ensure that their experience is deep enough that our readers will find it valuable. Although there are some locals with GREAT experience, they are not able to convey it in a way that is valuable for our readers.

If you are a local resident that wants to contribute to AboutEssex.com please reach out! You can start by filling out this form. We are always looking for new locals.

Our Editorial Policy

The last bit we wanted to cover was that the parents that contribute to the content of this website are not perfect.

It’s likely that you may disagree with some (or all?) of the recommendations our parents make. This is totally fine and expected because let’s face it, everyone has their own opinion on what’s correct.

With this in mind, we have a three step process.

  1. There are multiple parents that review product recommendations and guides before they are published.
  2. If there is consensus that a guide is generally correct in its recommendations, we publish it.
  3. For guides that are deemed incorrect, we have it re-written and re-submitted until there is agreement in its recommendations.

If you strongly disagree with a product recommendation please contact us and we will review the issue.
