Visit Southend on Sea for a taste of pure British seaside fun

Living in London can be great fun, but come the summer months, it gets pretty stuffy in the city. With the sunshine beating down onto hot pavements, and few green spaces to relax, you may find yourself yearning to reconnect with nature and enjoy the sun in a less busy place. For many of us, that means heading to the beach.

Days out by the seaside are always best in groups, whether you’re with family or friends. But how are you going to get there, economically and safely, and without turning your relaxing excursion into a stressful experience?

Simple: you get the coach.

Catch a ride

One way of beating the problem is to hire a coach.  There are coach companies , like Mayday Travel, that are based within Greater London that can provide you with versatile, flexible and economical transport on a time and date to suit you.  Find the size of vehicle that you want to fit within your budget, get each party member to contribute and your problems are over. It is as simple as a quick phone call to our specialist team.

Where to go

Southend on Sea is a resort town in Essex. Just 40 miles outside the capital, it’s a mere stone’s throw away, and a really easy journey on the coach.

Southend is situated to the north of the Thames Estuary. From the pier to Adventure Island, the heart of the town is a family-centric getaway that blends fun, food and fresh air – perfect for a trip in the school holidays. The pier itself is the longest in the world, and you can fish, take in a comedy show or simply enjoy the unparalleled views.

If you head to Southend in inclement weather, the Sea Life centre offers interactive fun for the kids, while the Royal Pavillion is a truly modern experience including galleries, exhibitions, performances and art.

Naturally, the best attraction in this town is the sea itself. There are seven miles of sea front in the town, and the town has 10 awards for the quality of its beaches. Go by coach and you’ll be dipping your toes in the cool, shimmering water before you know it.

Eat and drink

Southend on Sea is great for sunbathing, swimming and water sports, yet you can do as little – or as much – as you like. If you prefer to relax, eat and drink, you will find everything from a cooling ice-cream to a seafood feast here. Many of our coach trips arrive on market day, where you can browse the stalls and stop off at a local independent coffee shop for a fresh cup of your favourite roast.

Choose your coach

Mayday Travel is perfectly located in London and we can provide you with a choice of coach hire services to get you from A to B comfortably, safely and at a competitive price.  No matter the size of your party, we cater from 6 up to 80 without a hitch.
