Join Southend Museums on Sat 10 September for a tour that will explore Prittlewell, Southend’s historic centre. Starting at St Mary’s Church we will head down through Priory Park, exploring the historic landscape and hear the story of the development of Prittlewell. We will visit several historic monuments around the park before heading in to the Prittlewell Priory to explore this incredible 900 year old building.
