Escape to Braintree Village Sands


This Summer, the seaside comes to Braintree Village, complete with in-centre beach and family seaside games. Centre Manager, Josef O’Sullivan shares the centre’s summer highlights for 2019. He explains: “This summer we have something for everyone and can’t wait to unveil our new summer beach. Braintree Village Sands gives shoppers and their families the chance to take a break from shopping and enjoy the Essex sun!”
