Opening Times, Ticket Prices and Pier Train Information
We are extremely devastated to announce after the advice from the government for everyone to avoid social places that we have no choice but to close until further notice.
Southend Pier will be closed from today (Wednesday 18 March) in response to reducing the spread of coronavirus, until further notice. We are a popular tourism destination with many valuable assets and attractions, but to support the public health agenda we have had to make some unfortunate decisions.
Anyone with a booking will be contacted in due course.
We will keep this page updated in regards to our events.
If you have any queries please contact a member of the Pier team on 01702 215620.
We thank you for your continued support and hope to welcome our visitors again soon.
