Southend offers all the classic seaside delights that you'd expect from a bustling seaside town. With seven miles of beaches to explore as well as a wealth of top attractions

From the historic Southend Pier, which is the longest pleasure pier in the world, offering stunning views of the Estuary you won't find anywhere else in town. A day in Southend isn't complete without a visit to Adventure Island with its fantastic rides, or discover a world of watery wonder at Sea-Life Adventure.
If it's history and culture you're after, step back in time at one of Southend's historic houses, or wander through the colourful exhibitions at an art gallery or two.
