Holiday Summary

  • Travel Type: Coach

Southend, situated on the North bank of the Thames Estuary, is the largest resort in Essex and Londoners’ favourite seaside resort; it is just an hour by train from central London. It has a famous pier, the longest in the world, with a railway service along to the pier head over a mile out to sea. A large lift offers access to the seafront from the town’s shopping centre and theatres. Our hotel is situated ideally on the seafront, between the beach and pier and the bustling main shopping centre, both a stone’s throw away.
