The Historic town of Maldon sits proudly on a hill but no visit to the district would be complete without a visit to the popular Hythe Quay, where many Thames Barges have been lovingly restored by devoted owners, some are still in use commercially as charter vessels. The Hythe Quay offers historic pubs incorporating The Queens Head and Jolly Sailor both offering fine food. The Edwardian Promenade close to Hythe Quay enjoys stunning riverside walks and large amenity areas, including a children’s splash park, which is ideal for picnics and family days out. Maldon’s Historic High Street offers a unique and individual shopping experience and a Marks & Spencer’s simply food, along with many coffee shops and restaurants.
