Visit Santa on the Pier


Ho, Ho, Ho, Santa is returning to Southend Pier this festive season!

Book your little one's ticket for a magical experience like none other. Children and one accompanying adult will be whisked down to the end of the Pier where you will meet Santa and his merry band of helpers in the Royal Pavilion.

While you wait for your visit there will be an opportunity for Christmas colouring, writing a letter to Santa or if there's time grab yourself a festive treat from the Salt café next door.

Santa's elves will let you know when Santa is ready to see you. Once you've had your visit with the man himself, you'll head to his toyshop to pick your own special present!

Tickets are priced at £15.00 per child. This includes a train ride for the child and one accompanying adult (extra adults, pay on the day) a visit with Santa and a present of the child's choice.

Santa will be visiting every weekend from 21 November until 20 December and then every day from 21 – 24 December.
