Built in 1830, Southend Pier is the world's longest pleasure pier, stretching for over a mile (more than 2km) from the shore. You can ride a railway out to the end, or stop off at the Adventure Island amusement park to go for a spin on over 50 rides. There's also a museum with hands-on exhibits, an artists' studio and café in the Royal Pavilion, and a variety of events throughout the year. Plus you can visit a working RNLI lifeboat station!
Visit the sharks, rays and other underwater creatures at the Sealife Adventure aquarium; go bowling at the Kursaal; or simply unwind along Southend's multiple beaches, along one of the UK's cleanest stretches of coastline.
