Southend has the longest pier of any of the UK’s seaside resorts, and is actually the longest pleasure pier in the world. It is so long it even has its own railway line! It carries visitors to the town 1.34 miles into the Thames Estuary from the traditional seafront attractions and sandy beach. The town became popular in the 19th century with holidaymakers from London and still attracts many visitors who enjoy the cliff railway, the parks and pavilions and The Kursaal, part of one of the world’s first theme parks, opened in 1894. A Southend B&B or hotel is also a great place from which to explore the beautiful Essex marshes.
