Southend United Football Club - 0.92 miles
At one end of the ground is the relatively new South Stand. This stand replaced a former open terrace and greatly improved the overall look. It is a small 'double decker' type of stand, the upper tier hanging over the lower. It is all seated and covered, but unfortunately has a few supporting pillars. On its roof is a small clock, dedicated to former player, Director & Chairman, Frank Walton. There are a couple of blocks of flats that overlook the ground from behind this stand. Away fans are now housed in what was originally the home end, the North Stand, which is a covered seated stand at the other end of the ground. This stand, like the West Stand at one side of the pitch, are both single tiered and have old looking 'barrel' shaped roofs.
Southend-On-Sea Centre - 1.45 miles
The friendly resort of Southend-on-Sea is located 40 miles East of London, and is most famous for its pier, which at 1.33 miles is the world’s longest pleasure pier. Southend is often referred to as “London’s favourite theme park” due to its close proximity to the capital, and there is certainly never a shortage of things do here. When not enjoying the 7 miles of sea and foreshore you could visit the Kursaal bowling alley, Peter Pan’s Adventure Island, or any other of the many attractions and amusements on offer. There is also an excellent variety of restaurants, bars and pubs.
