Nice riverside park with lots to do for children with splash park, slides and pirate ship. Walks and lake with wild life for the parents. Plenty of places to grab a drink and bite to eat.

Maldon Museum is a must. Sparking imagination in the young and perhaps memories for the old, the museum will spin you into another world. Run by knowledgable and friendly volunteers who's passion is infectious, we must support them or risk the danger of losing this...More

Amazing place. It's brilliant what artifacts you can get into a lovely old building. I found the staff to be very helpful. Hoping that the local council don't force it to close in a few years time.
