The summer holidays might be over but there’s still plenty of reasons to #VisitSouthend.

Southend has a wide range of attractions making it a great place to visit. From relaxing on the 7 miles of beautiful beaches to an adrenaline-filled trip to Adventure Island, there’s something for everyone! Check out our Fun-filled Family Weekend guide to help you plan a weekend trip now and keep the kids entertained!

Even if the weather isn’t looking great there’s still loads to do! You can visit our indoor attractions, which includes our intriguing Museums and Art Galleries, as well as cinemas and arcades.

And when it’s time to eat there’s much more to food in Southend that just fish and chips – although they are pretty delicious! We’ve got a fantastic mix of fine dining and family friendly restaurants and of course being by the sea, we have some fabulous fresh seafood!

Some venues may still be operating with restrictions in place, please check ahead before you visit.
