Family feasts taste even better in the open air, so bag a table with a sea view on the seafront, relax in a pub garden, or simply sit in the sun and enjoy the some freshly made fish and chips.

Take a trip to Old Leigh and watch the fishing boats bring in their catch of the finest cockles, some of which are destined for top restaurants in Paris and the UK, whilst others stock the local cocklesheds, dotted along the Old Leigh seafront.

Seaside fun and ice cream go hand in hand and Rossi's have been making award-winning ice cream in Southend for more than 70 years. Try the Ice Cream Parlour on the seafront to see all that they have to offer, or stop by one of the kiosks to pick up a quick treat!
