The 95 bus runs through Goldhanger between Tollesbury and Maldon. There are bus stops in Head Street, Church Street, and the village square. Buses don't run that often, so best check the timetable otherwise you'll be left standing - exposed - and we'll all know you didn't check.

The main roads around Goldhanger aren't very cycle-friendly. Traffic is too fast and the bends can be dangerous. You can cycle along the sea wall but need a good pair of tyres for that.

You can alway get here by boat as well (if you have one). Take the Blackwater Estuary and turn right at Osea Island (if you're coming from the direction of the North Sea) into Goldhanger Creek. It's a good place to moor up and it's only a few minutes walk up to the village.
If you run aground on Osea Island causeway, you've gone too far!

SatNav will often take you to Church Street in Tollesbury or in Maldon (yes, they each have one). It's happened before. It gives the locals something to laugh about. You're probably better off resorting to road signs and some common sense. Or you can find a map here telling you where we are.

There aren't any car parks in the village. Please park sensibly and remember the bus needs to get through and so may the emergency services.

Travel news for road, rail, tube, air and sea can also be found on the Heart (Essex) website.

There are plenty of places to walk around here. The sea wall extends as far as Tollesbury in one direction and Heybridge and Maldon in the other.
