If you like to be beside the seaside, come to Southend-on-Sea and indulge in the innocent pastimes of the Victorian resort town. No matter how old you are, you will find something to do. Take a stroll down the UK’s longest pier and enjoy an ice cream. Coming with the kids? They will have a blast at Adventure Island and the Sea Life Centre!


No trip to Southend-on-Sea will be complete without calling in at Bailey’s, one of the best fish and Chip shops in the town. For ice cream, Rossi’s is an absolute must - this local institution has been serving Southend for 70 years. The Olde Trout Tavern is good for anyone who fancies a pint.


Many of the large retailers can be found at the Victoria or the Royals Shopping Centre. Southend High Street holds a General Market every Thursday.


Southend has a lively nightlife. You can go out for a few drinks in one of the many seaside pubs or, if you want a big night out, Bar Bluu, Box and Talk nightclubs will have you dancing until the small hours of the morning.  For something a little more sophisticated, go to Rendezvous Casino.
