Harwich is a sea port with a rich and varied history. The town of Harwich, covering just over one sqaure mile, has little free space and new jostles with old. The most prominent buildings in the town are either St Nicholas' Church in Church Street or the very modern Trinity House buildings by George Street.

Harwich has its fair share of famous names. The master of the pilgrims fathers' vessel, Mayflower, Christopher Jones was from Harwich. The diarist Samual Pepys was MP for Harwich.
