Seaside Delights in two days

Seaside Delights in two days

Travel by train to the Essex Coast for a chilled short break in Southend-on-Sea.  In this itinerary, we have combined the traditional seaside experience with spa, boutique shops and themed escape rooms.


Day 1


Morning - Arrive in Leigh-on-Sea and breathe in lung-fulls of sea air as you wander along the beach. Pick up a memento of your trip in one of the independent boutiques and stores along the high street.

Afternoon - There's plenty of choice to grab a bite to eat in one of the independent cafes or, alternatively try some cockles and whelks at one of the fish bars along the seafront.

Next stop, Southend, only a short train ride away. Relax and unwind with a pre-booked treatment at Roslin Beach Hotel's Roslin Retreat Spa.  Enjoy a traditional fish and chip dinner at either The Three Shells or Sands restaurant before solving riddles at one of Escape Live’s themed breakout rooms.


Day 2


Morning - Time to explore this seaside town, home to the longest pleasure pier in the world where you can take the train to the end of the pier and walk back.  Check out Jamie and Jimmy's mock-up cafe at the end of the pier where numerous top-notch celebrities have visited them for a Friday Night Feast.  Back on dry land, stroll along the lovely beach with a Rossi ice cream or hot chocolate in hand.  Enjoy the thrilling rides at Adventure Island and don't miss Sealife Adventure, open every day, all year round, where you can marvel at beautiful creatures from the deepest ocean including sharks in an enormous walk-through tunnel tank. 

Afternoon - Take afternoon tea at the Park Inn Palace and soak up spectacular estuary views of the glittering sea over sandwiches, scones and cakes.
