Southend-On-Sea Camping and Touring Van sites
Camping sites, touring caravan parks, campgrounds, trailer parks in Southend-On-Sea.
The closest seaside resort to the great London
metropolis, Southend is iconic as a place of jellied eels, endless amusement
arcades and summer time shows. It was a small, insignificant hamlet until
the early part of the 19th century. A visit by Queen Caroline and her
daughter, Princess Charlotte, who stayed at the Georgian Royal Terrace,
unwittingly created a new destination for holidaymakers. The coming of the
railway served to make it popular with the masses.
Today this irrepressible town on the north bank of the River Thames has even
more to offer, from beaches and gardens to white knuckle rides and
waterborne adventure. Its programme of events includes Europe’s largest free
airshow, regattas, firework displays, a jazz festival and a classic car run.
Its iron pier has survived numerous near-fatal incidents and is the longest
in the world at over a mile, and for those who find this a daunting distance
Southend has its own electric railway.
Nearby the remains of 12th century Prittlewell Priory have been turned into
a local museum.
