Find Family Days Out In Southend On Sea
Explore all the things to do at Southend-on-Sea and make the most of the dramatic seaside setting.
Start your day swimming with the fishes at Sealife Adventure. The South East’s number one aquarium has got every kind of sea creature from sharks and stingrays to seahorses and sea anemones. See lionfish, foxface and leaf fish swimming around in the ‘Most Venomous’ tank and be grateful that you’re not the one who has to clean it!
Remember to bring your swim stuff for a Southend-on-Sea family day out as you’ll be getting wet at the Marine Activities Centre! Have a go at all types of watersports from sailing to canoeing, windsurfing or jet skiing. There are trained instructors to tell you everything you need to know, so take the opportunity to get out there and carve up some waves.
The Southend Pier and Train go at a significantly more leisurely pace. Take your time travelling up the longest pier in the world as you soak up the view. Continue to travel in style as your board the Southend Cliff Lift. Climb 57 feet from Western Esplanade and Clifton Terrace and enjoy stunning views over the pier and estuary.
Adventure Island is bound to be a huge hit with the whole family. Overlooking the Southend seafront there are a total of 40 rides and attractions from the 75ft rollercoaster with the vertical drop to plenty of choices for smaller ones. The challenge will be getting them to leave!
