The longest pleasure pier in the world is here in Southend-on-Sea.
Welcoming over 300,000 visitors each year the Pier is an international icon and grade two listed building. It has also been recognised as a key attraction and has VAQAS (visitor attraction quality assurance scheme) accreditation.
With interest for school groups studying local history, geography and culture, the Pier makes a memorable day to bring lessons to life.
An ideal visit to Southend Pier would include a visit to the Visitor Information Centre for a school talk, a trip to the end of the world’s longest Pleasure Pier, a talk at the RNLI lifeboat station & a visit to the Pier Museum.
