About

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. Sir John Betjeman once said, "The Pier is Southend, Southend is the Pier" and it's as true today as it was when it first welcomed visitors all those years ago.

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 an afternoon tea in the inhouse café. The Pavilion also plays host to a number of fantastic events throughout the year, including Jazz and Comedy Festivals, plays, concerts, exhibitions and much more.

Throughout the year Southend on Sea 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
