❰ View on Map Updated: 6 months ago



Level and ramped access to main entrance door.  Double entrance doors are narrow and awkward to manoeuvre.  By arrangement side access available with ramped access to rear areas.

Disability toilet off entrance lobby - a little awkward to access around doors if in wheelchair.

Two steps give access to main bar area from second lobby but level/ramped access also available via side gates by arrangement.

Level access from main bar to toilets and fire exits but potential trip hazards at one fire exit and care needed.

Ramped access from function room to outside paved area but over a door threshold approx 40mm high; this also presents a potential trip hazard.

Travelling east along the seafront road (Western Esplanade) which runs along the coast at Southend-on-Sea, turn up Pier Hill which is on the east side of Southend Pier and opposite the eastern section of Adventure Island (an amusement centre with roller coasters etc and easily visible as you drive along the seafront).  Pier Hill is the turning where Western Esplanade meets Marine Parade.  Follow Pier Hill into Royal Terrace and the Club is at the far end of Royal Terrace, a dead end section of the road.

From the A13 travelling east from London, turn south down Chalkwell Avenue (immediately after Chalkwell Park) and follow the road round into Western Esplanade travelling east until you reach Southend Pier and Pier Hill is the first turning on left after the Pier bridge (big sign on bridge saying "Welcome to Southend Pier").

From A127 follow signs to central Southend and seafront, travelling east (i.e. turning left) as you reach the end of the A127 in central Southend (by Southend Victoria train station), continue to follow signs to seafront.  Travel along road and through the underpass, keep following seafront signs and you will arrive at the seafront by the Kursaal (on your left).  Turn west (i.e. right turn) along seafront road (Marine Parade) past the various amusement arcades and Pier Hill is the turning opposite Adventure Island.
