Sealife Adventure Zooquarium, Eastern Esplanade, Southend-on-Sea Essex, SS1 2ER

How to get here

Travelling by car

Come off the M25 at either Junction 29 (A127) or Junction 30 (A13) eastwards and follow the signs towards Southend seafront. You can use the address above to find your quickest route.

Where to park

We don’t have a dedicated car park here at Sealife Adventure, but there are plenty of council-owned car parks and street parking bays within easy walking distance of our Zooquarium.

If you want to beat the crowds and secure yourself a brilliant spot, we’d recommend getting to Southend as early as you can on the day of your visit. But don’t worry if all the bays next to the seafront are full up – there are plenty of parking facilities closer to Southend town centre, and these tend to be a little cheaper, too.

Car park prices in facilities that are further away from all the action will usually be a little cheaper, too.

For a faster and easier experience, we would recommend downloading the MOBON app. This will allow you to pay for your parking ticket digitally (and skip any pesky queues for the ticket machines when you arrive). 

Travelling by train

Southend Central and Southend Victoria are both within easy walking distance of Sealife Adventure. Southend Central is served by the C2C line, while Southend Victoria runs on the Abellio Greater Anglia line.

Southend Central is serviced by the C2C line. To reach us, stroll out of the station, take a right down the High Street, turn right again towards the seafront, and you’ll soon spot us.
