The borough of Southend-on-Sea comprises Southend town centre and a number of local centres from Leigh-on-Sea to the west, through to Shoeburyness in the east. It has a catchment area of over 350,000 people. The Thames Gateway boundary also covers a small part of the district of Rochford, home to London Southend Airport and some high-quality green spaces. The borough is on two main lines, both running to London in less than an hour. The A127 and A13 provide the main highway links to and from Southend.

Southend has long been a favourite tourism destination for people in the South East: more than six million people visit Southend each year. Southend is also a place to do business. The Inland Revenue and Keymed (medical equipment) are two of the largest employers, along with several multi-national financial institutions, HSBC, RBOS and Lloyds. There are currently 1,200-1,500 jobs on site at the airport terminal and in other associated activities adjacent to the airport.

The draft East of England Plan sets a target for the creation of 6,500 new homes and 13,000 jobs by 2021. The growth of the Thames Gateway presents opportunities to strengthen Southend’s position as one of the UK’s favourite tourism destinations, to create new jobs in a more diverse range of sectors, and to improve quality of life for local residents. Southend town centre will accommodate almost 50 per cent of the jobs growth and 25 per cent of housing growth. Elsewhere, proposals to expand London Southend Airport could bring new employment opportunities, both short-term with construction work on the terminal building, and also long-term in related activities.

Southend-on-Sea town is primarily a seaside resort, but is the home of companies such as FDR (the credit card processing company), Amstrad, Maplin Electronics, and a host of electrical equipment, pharmaceutical and light engineering firms.

The most notable landmark is that of the 1.3 mile (2km) long pier which extends out into the Estuary – it’s the longest pleasure pier in the world. Southend is also famous for the Golden Mile of amusement arcades and attractions, including the Kursaal bowling alley and bar, and Peter Pan’s Adventure Island.

Local attractions

Southend-on-Sea, is a popular seaside resort, with its close proximity to London. The town has a range of attractions to offer, including the annual illuminations on the seafront, boat trips, the Golden Mile of arcades, and a wide range of shops in the High Street, including The Royals Shopping Center.

Southend offers a glorious seven mile stretch of coastline. Award-winning beaches, beautiful parks and gardens, family fun attractions, museums, art galleries and exhilarating watersports.

It has the world’s longest pleasure pier (stretching 1.33 miles in the Thames estuary) –with a train to take you to the end. Children will love Adventure Island (brave the thrilling ‘Rage’ roller coaster), or head underwater at the Sealife Adventure to come face-to-face with sharks.

Southend’s pedestrianised High Street is one of the region’s top shopping destinations. When it gets dark there are fashionable nightspots, casinos and pubs, as well as theatre and classical music venues. Eating out can be whatever your mood dictates, from fish and chips on the Golden Mile to high class restaurants.
