Alongside the traditional seaside entertainment, there's a flourishing culture scene to discover. Here you'll find a selection of our cultural offering.…

Whether you fancy exploring Southend's fascinating past at one of our historic houses or history hotspots, take a ride on the cliff lift, or discover the wonders of the night sky at the planetarium. You can also enjoy a wide range of exhibitions year round at our two great art galleries, or head to the bandstand for a classical open-air concert, there's a lot more to Southend than meets the eye!
