My favorite beach to take a relaxing walk, chill and view the colourful beach huts, some of which you can hire for a day or evening. I spent an evening at Buttercup beach hut and really loved it.

Once a busy fishing port, famed for its whitebait and shellfish, Leigh is an ideal spot for a day trip. It has old fishing village charm, coupled with the bustle of modern life. Leigh-on-Sea is also home to 'The Broadway', a thriving main street with a plethora of restaurants and cafes (from fine dining to fab chip shops), but it’s also home to an increasing amount of boutique stores and art galleries.
