Burnham-On-Crouch Station

Burnham on Crouch is one of Britain's leading places for yachting and hosts Burnham Week a sailing event that takes place annually, in the last week of August.
Burnham has a street market on Tuesday mornings.

Burnham-on-Crouch station is on the Crouch Valley branch line in the east of Essex, which connects with the Shenfield-to-Southend Victoria line at Wickford. It takes about one hour and ten minutes to get to London Liverpool Street, and there are a few direct trains at rush hour but most require a change at Wickford. At Shenfield, two stops further on from Wickford, passengers can connect with trains northbound to Chelmsford, Colchester and on into Suffolk and Norfolk.

A stretch of track to the west of Burnham-on-Crouch runs close to the River Crouch estuary and its tributary creeks, offering views out over the water. In the town itself, the waterside is less than 20 minutes' walk from the station. The whole area is popular for yachting, and there are a range of clubs nearby, including the Royal Corinthian Yacht Club with its 1931 Grade II* listed clubhouse designed by celebrated modernist architect Joseph Emberton.

The station gardens are vibrant with colour and the planters are cared for by local pre schools and nurseries.
