SOUTHEND PIER (Ilfracombe Hotel is only 10 minute walk from the Pier)

Western Esplanade , Southend-on-Sea, Essex SS1 1E, 

Tel: 01702 215620 email: vic@southend.gov.uk

If you walk along Southend-on-Sea’s High Street, towards the sea, your eye will be drawn in a straight line towards the longest pleasure Pier in the world.

Standing for over a century it extends 2.158 kilometres (1.341 miles) into the Thames Estuary, and is a well loved and recognised symbol of Southend and the pleasures of the English seaside.

With truly stunning 360 degree views all year round, Southend Pier is the perfect place to go for a taste of the invigorating fresh air, and experience the freedom of the sea or to simply spend the day fishing at Southend pier. At the Pier Head you can visit the active RNLI station and gift shop, relax and take in the fantastic views from the superb sun-deck or stop by The Royal Pavilion, which dominates much of the Pier Head and provides the perfect place for a drink and a snack from “Salt” the pier head cafe.

Throughout the year Southend Pier plays host to a number of fantastic events, from live music and puppetry, to spooktacular Halloween fun and even a visit from Santa, as well as visiting Tall Ships, which offer unique trips and a taste of the nautical life.

As in Winter before spring, it is always darkest before a breakthrough, no state is ever permanent, internally or externally of us. As long as we take action, tomorrow will be different than it is today. We are capable of being in a different place, see ourselves there and we will get there. Don't put expectations on how or what we need to do to get there, just 'be', know where we want to 'be' and it will all just come to be! 😄🙏🏻 .

Feeling like the luckiest girl in the world after a day with view35films. Such a pleasure to work with the most amazing team tom_ruddock, rachelle_shells, yannickhausler, ematc and mollybtebbutt.

The seaside, beautiful weather, extraordinary people and candy floss (or fairy floss...!) - the most perfect way to spend a Sunday.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!

- Explored the longest leisure pier in the world this bank holiday weekend! Southend Pier offers fantastic views of the coast, and a 2.2km walk extending into the Thames Estuary. 🌉
.
.
.
There are three ways to explore the pier:
1) Walk the whole way.
2) Jump aboard the Southend Pier Railway - HIGHLY recommended! The train runs every 15 minutes from the start of the pier to the very end, and is a fantastic alternative for those not interested in a 40 minute walk.
3) Or, mix and match; walk one way and take the train back up! Costs £5 for a return ticket (per person), and offers the best of both worlds. 🙆‍♀️
.
.
.
I mixed and matched and had the most fun! Southend Pier Head offers colourful beach huts, arcade games, crazy golf, a giant chessboard, loads of ice-cream and views for days. 🚢
.
.
.
Do you enjoy long summer walks? Or is hot weather too uncomfortable for them? 🚶‍♀️

Southend Pier, the longest pleasure pier in the world, stretching out to sea for 1.3 miles. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Originally opened in 1830 with the town beginning to make its name as a holiday resort, with many Londoners visiting from the city. However the coast at Southend consists of large mudflats, so the sea is never very deep even at high tide. The large boats were unable to stop here, meaning potential visitors would sail past Southend and on to nearby Margate, where they could dock safely. So local dignitaries pushed for a pier to be built allowing boats to reach Southend. In 1890 the first electric trains started running the length of the pier.

I've worked the past week the equivalent of 2 weeks and I think I worked the equivalent of 4weeks in the past 2 weeks.
And I don't actually remember when I had really 24 houres off and nothing to do! I still tried to keep up with my house woman, and mummy duties!
I still cleaned the toilet ever 2 days washed the kitchen down ones a week and washed Washing everyday. 🦸‍♀️

I just got home early from a busy day went straight in house mum mode when I realized I am not happy inside!
When you got that feeling of unappreciation STOP!
You are most likely just over worked 🙏
Get showered, put a nice dress on and fak it 💯
I guarantee you the same housework is still there tomorrow! 🤣🤬🤣🤷
Easy dinner and me time 💃

It is important to look after yourself because unfortunately most of the time no one else will! ❤️

I mean look at the sky...It looks like the clouds are scraping the surface of the sea.⁣

Kudos to them folks for doing this tough and dangerous job 🤙 ⁣

Ou and did I mentioned that flying through those gigantic waves with the boat sounds super super SUPER fun! 🌊🌀⁣
