Literally minutes away from high street full of shops, there are many restaurants and bars providing all night entertainment. For guests that fancy a little calmer surroundings there are many amazing cafes serving great late and providing breath taking views over the Thames.
Southend Cliff Gardens are also worth mentioning. A blend of formal and informal gardens with beautiful views across the Thames Estuary full of unique species of migrating birds, would calm even the busiest mind. The Cliffs Gardens are a short walk to Southend Town Centre, the Pier, Cliffs Pavilion Theatre and Adventure Island.
Southend on sea has also an incredible advantage of having it's own airport at door step. Only 15 minutes away from town centre, the newly built Southend Airport is one of the six main airports serving London.
Where 30 minutes worth of a train ride will get you right to heart of London, Southend on sea might be just place that simply has it all!
