Southend-on-Sea

The town of Southend-on-Sea is well known for its seafront attractions, the most notable being the landmark of the 1.3 mile (2km) long pier which extends out into the Estuary.The district has Borough status, and comprises the towns of Chalkwell, Eastwood, Leigh-on-Sea, Prittlewell, Shoeburyness, Southchurch, Thorpe Bay, and Westcliff-on-Sea.

The district is situated within the Thames Gateway on the north side of the Thames estuary 40 miles (64 km) east of central London. It is bordered to the north by Rochford and to the west by Castle Point.

The town is known for its seafront. Since 1986, a diesel-hydraulic railway has run the length of pier, replacing the electric service which opened in 1890. A fire in October 2005 damaged the far end of the pier. The pier has been beset by fires; a fire in 1995 destroyed the bowling alley at the start of the pier. The pier was also run through by a boat in 1984.
