An outdoor adventure

Adventure Island

Adventure Island located on Southend Seafront is the perfect day out for all the family. Being a free admission attraction the great thing is you only pay if you want to play. With over 60 rides and attractions, there’s something for everybody to enjoy… Scream through the loops and twists of Rage – with its 75ft drop and 360 degree barrel roll. It’s the only ride of its kind in England, and was voted the most thrilling rollercoaster in the UK by BBC1’s Blue Peter.

Distance from hotel: only a 15-minute drive.

More indoor activities for the kids (just in case)!!

Caddies Golf Experience

Caddies is the most unique destination in Southend, with a distinct 70s ‘house party’ vibe – it is the perfect destination for a day out with the family or a night out with friends. Choose from one of their two eccentric Crazy Golf Courses, that feature Singing Chickens, a Fireplace that insults you, a Giant Loop de Loop, Farting Fish and many more obstacles/interactive features!

Distance from hotel: only a 13-minute drive.

Our favourite place

Southend Pier

If you walk along Southend High Street, towards the sea, your eye will be drawn in a straight line towards the longest pleasure pier in the world. There’s plenty of fun things to see and do while you’re visiting…

Visitors will be able to enjoy the 1.3 mile walk both ways (2.6 mile return trip), walk one way & ride the train one way, or train both ways. Masks must be worn on the train and in enclosed areas of the Pier.

Takeaway services are open everyday offering drinks, snacks, ice cream and fish and chips.
