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 even try your hand at sea fishing (fishing pass available from the Visitor Information Centre).

Additionally, elegant pleasure boats, as well as impressive visiting Tall Ships, offer trips and a taste of the nautical life at key times of the year, whilst the Pier’s own busy events calendar means there is often something new to see!

Whilst at the Pier take the opportunity to visit the Southend Pier Museum which offers a fascinating insight into the history of this famous landmark.

Wheelchairs with particularly slim wheels may be affected by the gaps between the deck boards, if customers are concerned they may hire one of our on-site wheelchairs as a substitute.
