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.

Today I enjoyed the railway on Southend Pier, the longest pleasure pier in the world. The line was opened in 1890/91, closed in 1978, but reopened in 1986. Original electrically powered and on a 3ft 6in gauge, since its reopening it has employed DMUs on a 3ft gauge track.

Two new battery powered trains are due for delivery this year.

Throw ⬅️ London Eye 2016.

Tickets are booked and we are finally going back to the UK!
I should have gone in April, but Corona messed this plan up. I think it has been over a year since I’ve been there with my family friends.

I have seen a lot of places in the UK but this time I am going somewhere new, as my second family just moved to Essex, we will have to explore this county!

We are travelling by car on the car train as it is a perfect solution during this crazy time, you don’t have to leave your car so very safe😃

Can not wait to be away for a few days!

Essex here we come!

Has anyone of you been there before?

10 sunshine miles with hellorunner_80. And we went up to the end of Southend Pier and back again. Was delightful!

I think this will be my last double digit run before the marathon, 12 days to go and so much blood, sweat and tears over the past 2 years, literally!

Loved running with my best buddy today, marathon training can be lonely but the miles always go faster with a friend 🥰
