By Train

There are two direct train lines which operate between London and Southend. The c2c line from Fenchurch Street to Southend Central and the Greater Anglia from Liverpool Street to Southend Victoria.


The journey time from London on both lines is approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour, and both stations are a short walk from the seafront.

C2C Rail

Due to track maintenance work, a rail replacement bus will be in operation between Liverpool Street – Barking and Upminster – Pitsea.

Greater Anglia

By Car

There are two major roads which link Southend to the M25, the A127 and A13:

  • From the north Southend is accessible via the A1, M11, M25 (Junction 29 – 20 miles) & A127.

  • From the south, Southend can be reached via the M25 (Junction 30) or from the Dartford Tunnel & A13.


Seafront car parks fill up fast, so unless you're coming super early then grab a spot at one of the city centre car parks, which are all just a short walk to the seafront. Click here to visit Southend City Council's website.
