WHY NOT VISIT SOUTHEND THIS SUMMER?

Southend offers all the traditional seaside pleasures along our seven miles of seafront, but you'll soon discover there's far more besides the seaside here.

We offer a range of great attractions for the whole family to enjoy, like the longest Pleasure Pier in the world, Adventure Island fun park, Sea-Life Adventure Aquarium and many more. History buffs can step back in time at some fascinating places like Southchurch Hall or Prittlewell Priory and take a ride on the shortest cliff lift in the UK. Our Town Centre offers a unique shopping experience and with over three hundred mouth-watering places to eat and a dazzling live music and nightlife scene, you really are spoilt for choice.

All of this is just an hour's train ride from London, and although we’re easy to reach by rail, road or air, with the development of the London Southend Airport, it gets harder and harder to leave!
