Essex is a county in southeast England, between London and the North Sea. The capital Colchester Zoo is home to orang-utans and white rhinos. To the north is the medieval market town of Saffron Walden, home to Jacobean estate Audley End House and Gardens. Much of the geographic county of Essex continues to undergo industrial, residential, and recreational development as part of the metropolitan region centred on London.
