With miles of stunning coastline and the Southend Pier which has its own small train, the resort town of Southend-on-Sea in Essex has everything you could hope for in a seaside holiday. When the sun shines, there's no better place to be than at one of the five Blue Flag beaches you'll find here. Only 40 miles from London on the Thames Estuary in Essex, other attractions for families include Sealife Adventure and the tropical and local species of aquatic life in its aquarium. Then there's Adventure Island, a theme park with rides, museums and galleries.
