Harwich is located in Essex on the south east coast of England, and is among the group of ports known as the Haven that are located on the North Sea coast. Harwich is situated in the Tendering district with famous places such as Ipswich and Colchester nearby. Harwich's position on the estuaries of the Orwell and Stour rivers, and its usefulness as the only safe anchorage between the Thames and Humber rivers mean that the town has had a long history of maritime significance, for both civil and military shipping.

In 1657 Harwich port was converted to a naval base and became heavily fortified, with the Harwich Redoubt and Beacon Hill Battery, the Redoubt still remains today and is open for visitors to explore. Along with this, the old part of the town which is now a conservation area with a number of historical buildings is well worth a visit whilst in Harwich.
