Rainy Day Plans

The great British weather, it's anything but predictable. You've made your plans to visit Southend and now it's raining! Yes - it even rains in sunny Southend, despite us being crowned England's sunniest seaside resort.

But don't let a little rain put you off. We still have loads to do whatever the weather. So let's get planning to rejuvenate those drizzly days!

Leverets Trail

Check out the 53 leverets hiding around cultural venues around the town. For a small donation pick up a trail map and explore the borough while discovering the wonderful baby hares designed by local schools and community groups. It's a perfect wet weather activity! The leverets are part of the Hares about Town art trail.

Southend Pier & Railway

Even in the wet weather Southend Pier is a must do when visiting Southend! Enjoy the views and keep dry with a ride on the famous Pier train. Running every half an hour, it's a fantastic way to see the estuary views without getting wet. The Visitor information centre even sells rain ponchos if you're feeling brave enough to disembark!

Keeping Together Scheme

Pick up a Keeping together wristband to ensure peace of mind when visiting Southend. The free wristband from Southend BID and Essex Police is designed for children to wear and contains space for parents or carers to write a contact number, in case the worst should happen.
