Some retail therapy

Shopping in Southend High Street offers an array of shops to choose from. Experience The Royals, Southend’s prime shopping centre, hosting numerous major UK brand retailers.  Smell the coffee from the Utopia Coffee Lounge or BB’s set in middle of the shopping centre. Here you can relax and offload the weight of those heavy shopping bags ….

Leigh-on-Sea is just 15 minutes away by car, train or bus and combines a cosmopolitan mix of art and café culture with traditional fishing heritage.
Browse the many independently owned shops and boutiques to find designer dresses, antiques, books, furniture, home ware and other treasures.
Seek out paintings, ceramics and jewellery in galleries and speciality shops, or visit during Leigh Art Trail when artists open their homes and studios and you can purchase or commission a unique piece of art.
