near Chalkwell, England (United Kingdom)

Beginning on promenade below Chalkwell station, walking towards Southend, enjoying views of the estuary and the longest pleasure pier in the world. There are opportunities to buy a famous Rossi’s from the seafront ice- cream parlour.
Passing the cliff lift, a century old funicular, which clings to the hillside on our left and Adventure Island on our right. We continue on under the pier and along the golden mile as far as the grand, grade II Kursaal building.
Here we leave the seafront and have a short walk towards Southchurch Hall, a Grade I listed Medieval Manor House.
