Local amenities

A convenient place to live

Our Stephenson Road Campus is located close to the heart of Southend, with its shops, restaurants and bars.

Transport links

The transport links are excellent with a comprehensive bus network and two major London-bound train lines (including nine rail stations in the borough).

Entertainment

Southend is famous for its great nightlife. There are pubs, clubs and restaurants to suit every taste and the seafront offers everything from a fun park with lots of rides, amusement arcades, bowling, a trip along our famous pier or just a day on the beach.

Arts and festivals

There’s a strong community of artists in the town with regular shows and exhibitions such as the Beecroft and Focal Point galleries, which feature visits from international artists. Southend’s major theatres, the Cliffs Pavilion and the Palace Theatre, attract major West End touring productions, as well as concerts, ballet, opera and comedy. There are also various festivals throughout the year including: Southend Film Festival (April), Village Green (June), Leigh Folk Festival (June) and Thurrock Festival (July).

Sport and leisure

Being a coastal town, windsurfing, sailing and kite surfing are popular local pastimes, with speedboat racing and a sailing regatta also taking place every year. If hiking along the estuary is your thing then you’ll enjoy picturesque Hadleigh Country Park and walks. For mountain bike fans the track created for the 2012 Olympics offers a challenging off-road course for both cyclists and runners.

Parks, gardens and history

Southend offers a number of lavish parks, public gardens and woodland. It is a town steeped in history with an 11th century castle, an ancient priory and churches mentioned in the Domesday Book as well as several local museums.

Food and drink

With around 300 places to eat in the borough, from large chains and independent family-run restaurants to the College’s own Waves restaurant, Southend offers a choice of global cuisine.

Shopping

Southend has a huge variety of shops with all the major high street stores and plenty of small independent traders. There are two shopping malls; the Victoria Shopping Centre and The Royals Shopping Centre.
