Southend Pier

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.

The smallest, most inconvenient art studio I’ve ever had. But definitely winning in terms of location. 1.3 miles out into the ocean at the end of the longest pier in the world! Thank you jamieoliver jimmysfarm & the rest of the crew 🙌🏻 What a lovely show to be part of! 📸 _steveryan_ .

Thanks for the nice messages after my babbling story the other day about how rough it was getting this re-sewn ready to exhibit.

Here’s the original, back in a hoop and looking neat. I sized down so it would fill right up beyond the edges and really love the outcome now. Nice when good things come out of stressful accidents, isn’t it?
In case you missed it, I’ve added the story as a highlight - of how I made two versions of this piece and my clumsy struggle to get it finished for the madeinessex #secretpostcardsale (which incidentally has totally sold out!) #embroidery #contemporaryembroidery #embroideryinstaguild #handembroidery #stitchersofinstagram #modernembroidery #embroideryart #hoopart #leighonsea #embroideryhoop #essex #estuary #oldleigh #needleworksociety #nicegirlsneedleclub #southend #southendonsea #thamesestuary #dmcthreads #dmcembroidery #britishstitchers #damngoodstitch #threadpainting #southendpier #britishseaside #essexcoast
