WELCOME TO THAXTED
Thaxted is a small country town with a recorded history which dates back to before the Domesday Book. The town is full of considerable architectural interest and its attraction as a place to visit arises just as much from the special character of the town as a community.
Thaxted has a variety of shops, restaurants, pubs and other businesses which serve the needs of residents and visitors alike, making the town a centre for trade and commerce today, as it has been for 1000 years.
"There is no town in north Essex – and very few in England – to equal in beauty, compactness and juxtaposition of medieval and Georgian architecture, the town of Thaxted". Sir John Betjeman
