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.

📍 Southend Pier, Essex

Southend's amazing pier, built in 1830, is the longest pleasure pier in the world, measuring at 1.33 miles!! 🌊

You can enjoy a lovely walk along the planks, taking in the wonderful views and breathing in the fresh sea air. 🚶‍♀️

Alternatively, there is a pier railway that runs from one end to the other if you'd prefer to take it easy. 🚂

At the end of the pier you can check out the RNLI lifeboat station or enjoy something to eat in the cafe. Until recently, Jamie Oliver had a restaurant here too where you used to film his TV show with lots of celebrities! 🚨

The pier was also used during both World Wars! 🇬🇧

This is a great place to get fab views of the seafront and watch all of the boats and water sports going on. ⛵

Nearby:
- Adventure Island 🎢
- Fish and chip shops 🐠
- Arcades 🕹
- High Street shops 🛍
- Cliffs Pavilion theatre 💃

When my grandad was a kid, he used to stand under the pier and sing for the day trippers. They ‘d throw down pennies and he’d poked around in the soft mud to find them. I am from humble beginnings.

Just snapped this epic pic of coast guard boat randomly mobbi'n through the sea. ⁣
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! 🌊🌀⁣

Southend pier once again , this time on a autumn , COLD windy day. The contrast of the level of enjoyment is unbelievable. During my visit on a summer day it was very happy vibe and I could take lots of good pictures. This time let’s say it was more like trying hard Not to fly away from the pier ‘ 😉 and ice cold ❄️ to the core . But did manage to capture few good ones, thank goodness for Hot Chocolate ☕️ .
All in all one of my fav places / beach side not too far from London. .

So good to get out with my paints this morning. This was one of the last paintings I started before lockdown and although it was a bit brighter today I thought it would be a good one to get back to. It will be available at this year's Leigh art trail if we are able to run it or otherwise it will be available online.#pleinairpainting #pleinair #southendonsea #southendpier #mudflats #paulalcock #leigharttrail ...
