Whether you want to soak up the sun with a spring or summer shopping trip or take the chill out of winter with a heaven sent shopping spree, Southend offers some of the best shopping at any time of the year. We have two main shopping centres that anchor each end of the busy High Street, where you'll find all kinds of great independent boutiques to the usual big name high street retailers.

Southend's markets are the place to shop! Cook up a feast with the very best of produce direct from the grower. Find local specialities and fresh food at Farmers' Markets held twice monthly in Southend's bustling Town Centre.
