COMING TO SEE THE COCA COLA CHRISTMAS TRUCK?

27 November 2017

THE HOLIDAYS ARE COMING TO SOUTHEND THIS WEDNESDAY (29TH NOVEMBER) FROM 11am-7pm WITH THE ARRIVAL OF THE COCA-COLA CHRISTMAS TRUCK AT THE TOP OF SOUTHEND HIGH STREET (OUTSIDE ODEON). 

It's set to be a fantastic day filled with loads of festive fun, but it will be very busy, so to make the most of it check out our handy tips below.

PLEASE NOTE - London Road will be closed from the junction at Roosters Piri Piri/Pizza Express so there will be no drop off at the top of the High Street for anything other than taxis and emergency vehicles. 

CAR PARKS

Try out a different car park? All town centre car parks are located within a 5 minute walk of the High Street - Alexandra Street, Warrior Square, Clarence Road, London Road (behind Pizza Express), Tylers Avenue, University Square, Essex Street, York Road, Short Street.

Seaway Car Park; Seaway has over 500 spaces and is just a five minute walk to the High Street. 

Not forgetting the Shopping Centre car parks; Royals Shopping Centre on Church Road and Victoria Shopping Centre on Chichester Road

If you’re up for a slightly longer walk why not try the car park on Victoria Avenue which offer over 200 spaces and is just a 10 minute stroll to the High Street.

Check the VMS
(Vehicle Management System) located on the major routes into town for up to date details on available parking spaces

TRAIN TIMES

Catch a Train The roads might get busy during the course of the day, so to avoid the traffic and the hunt for a space in one of the town car parks why not hop on the train instead? Southend Central train station on the C2C line and Southend Victoria station on the Abellio Greater Anglia line are both less than five minutes walk from all the festive fun.

ON THE BUSES

Hop on a bus from anywhere in the Borough and get dropped off at your convenience
