Southend Pier is the town's historical icon as well as being the longest pleasure pier in the world. It stretches for 1.33 miles, putting Southend on the map as well as into the record books.
If you don't fancy walking the length of the pier take a ride on the 3 ft (914 mm) narrow gauge railway that runs for 1.25 miles (2.01 km) along the length of Southend Pier. Pier trains leave the shore end of the Pier on the hour and half hour from opening until 1 hour before closing. The trains leave the Pier Head at a quarter to and a quarter past the hour until 15mins before closing. This is a half hourly service.
Special trips on the Pier train take place throughout the year such as Ghost Trains and Santa on the Pier. For the latest information on this visitor offer please browse our 'What's On' event page.
