The town has had a recent 25 million facelift and, although it hasn t entirely abandoned the bright neon and brash amusement arcades of its seafront, it has seen new pavements, lighting and a fashionable water feature.
It is not the only big infrastructure improvement to hit the town in recent years. Southend Airport has had 100 million spent on it since transport group Eddie Stobart took over in 2008. A new terminal and train station opened before the Olympics, and Easyet and Aer Lingus now fly out of the airport to destinations all over Europe.
Southend has trains to Fenchurch Street and Liverpool Street that take around an hour. This is a longer-than-average commute, compensated for by some lovely family houses and grammar schools.
Shops and restaurants:
Southend has a busy town centre which runs from Victoria Station down to the sea. The high street is bookended with two shopping centres: the Victoria and the Royals. The Royals has a Debenhams and Primark. Ravens, in Clifftown Road, is a family-run, small department store specialising in fashion. Nearby in Alexandra Road, just off the high street, there are a number of quirky independent shops, bars and restaurants, including Callie & Finn for vintage clothing, bistro Old Hat and La Petite Petanque, a cafe and restaurant overlooking the bowling green.
However, for a better selection of independent shops and restaurants, locals head for Leigh-on-Sea where there are two branches of the Birdwood Bakery, a local artisan baker famous for its sausage rolls, and numerous boutiques, interiors, gift shops and art galleries.
Down in Old Leigh there are the famous cockle sheds where generations of East-Enders have come for this particular delicacy, and there are newer, smarter restaurants with terraces overlooking the estuary.
There are hundreds of new homes being built throughout Southend-on-Sea. Shoeburyness Garrison is a development at Southend s most easterly point, which contains 465 new build and refurbished three-, four- and five-bedroom houses .
Also in Shoeburyness, Bovis Homes is selling one- and two-bedroom flats at Buttercup Court on the Parklands development in North Shoebury Road.
In nearby Rayleigh, Bellway has a development of 101 two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom homes at Kingley Grange for completion in the summer of 2015, with the first phase complete in May or June of this year.
