Southend-on-Sea property suits every taste and lifestyle

Southend-on-Sea is a popular English seaside resort in Essex that encompasses the towns of Eastwood, Leigh-on-Sea, Chalkwell, Shoeburyness, Thorpe Bay, Southchurch, North Shoebury, Prittlewell and Westcliff-on-Sea.

The region's reputation as an ideal UK holiday destination makes houses for sale in Southend-on-Sea popular among those who yearn for a seaside retreat that overlooks the water.

Southend-on-Sea is home to the longest pleasure pier in the world, which stretches out by over a mile from the shore. The town also boasts numerous seafront attractions, such as Adventure Island (formerly known as Peter Pan's Playground), which is located at the entrance of the pier and features more than 50 rides.

The Sea-Life Adventure aquarium, which is ideal for days out for all the family, is also located on the seafront

Property seekers looking for houses for rent in Southend-on-Sea could hone in their search around the site where the Kursall amusement park used to stand. Built at the start of the 20th century, the Kursaal was one of Britain's earliest theme parks. However, it was closed down in the 1970s and much of the land was turned into housing developments. 

Property seekers with no dependents who are seeking small accommodation could consider the developments around Southchurch Avenue, which features modern purpose-built double-glazed apartments ideal for young professionals.

Not only is Southend-on-Sea an ideal place to live for single people and couples, it is also a good choice for families due to its proximity to a selection of good schools. The region boasts four grammar schools: Southend High School for Boys, Southend High School for Girls, Westcliff High School for Boys and Westcliff High School for Girls.

There are also a number of further and higher education institutes such as South Essex College, which was formed when South East Essex College merged with Thurrock and Basildon College, and SEEVIC College.  ADNFCR-1222-ID-800675221-ADNFCR
