SOUTHEND and rural Essex

Southend literally has all the fun of the fair and those rip-roaring summer days on roller coasters, but there’s much more… the world’s longest seaside Pier at more than a mile ! Good eating round town – but within ten miles of Southend you’ve also got the peaceful and beautiful Hadleigh country park and the Royal Horticultural Society’s gardens at Hyde Hall. Loads for all tastes ! Runs to 31 minutes…
