About Southend-on-Sea, Essex

Southend-on-Sea is a resort town on the Thames Estuary in Essex, in the South East of England.

Southend-on-Sea lies 40 miles east of central London and is connected to London by road via the A127 and A13 (with a travel time of around 1 hour 20 minutes) or by train via Southend Central Station to London Fenchurch Street Station (55 minutes) or via Southend Victoria Station to London Liverpool Street Station (about 1 hour).

Its proximity to London has made Southend-on-Sea a popular commuter town with around a fifth of the working population commuting to London on a daily basis prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. Together with Southend-on-Sea being one of the most densely populated areas in the UK (outside of London) and having a high proportion of people aged over 65 years, this has resulted in considerable pressures on the local housing market, making it a relatively expensive place to buy a home. Southend-on-Sea also topped Simply Business’s best places to invest in buy-to-let property in October 2018.

The local economy is focused on tourism, with around 6 million visitors a year who are drawn to the beach and the traditional attractions of an English seaside resort, including the longest leisure pier in the world. Southend-on-Sea has industrial parks located at Progress Road, Comet and Aviation Ways in Eastwood and Stock Road in Sutton. Firms located in Southend-on-Sea include Olympus Keymed, Hi-Tec Sports, MK Electric and Royal Bank of Scotland card services, whilst Southend University Hospital employs over 4,450 people.
