The local area
Southend-on-Sea grew in popularity during the 19th century when rail travel came to prominence, opening up the seaside resort for many tourists during the summer months and leading to widespread construction including that of Southend’s pier. The pier is now a Grade II listed building, extending almost 1.5 miles into the Thames estuary, while the Southend Cliff Railway and the Adventure Island amusement park are other attractions along the shoreline.
Southend-on-Sea is served by two main National Rail lines, which offer plenty of services to London that take around an hour.
