Understand

Contrary to popular belief and stereotypes, Essex is not actually an urban wasteland. Most of the county is rural, and has some very beautiful scenery that is widely unknown to outsiders.

Talk

Obviously an English speaking county, accents tend to vary in Essex. In the northern and rural areas of the county, you are much more likely to hear the traditional East Anglian accent, which is very similar to that of the west country. But the most common heard is known as the estuary accent, some say its a cross between cockney and East Anglian.
