The Artcafé is located on the island of Mersea at the mouth of the River Blackwater on the east coast of Essex 50 miles out of London and just 9 miles south of Colchester on the B1025 and we (the artcafé) are on the corner of Church Road and Coast Road opposite the Norman Church of St. Peter and St. Paul. Simply stay on the main road (B1025) when you come onto the island and you’ll come right to us.
Being an island, Mersea has just one road link with the Essex Mainland via the causway known as the ‘Strood’ which can flood for an hour or so at spring tides. For accurate tide times check out the Mersea Island website
