Southend Pier to demolish Arcade


Southend Pier is to lose its amusement arcade in a £300,000 facelift proposed by the council. The ‘improvements’ will include a larger entrance and reception area as well as demolishing the existing arcade to the west of the pier.

The wall between the arcade and the current pier entrance will also be demolished, creating a sheltered area for pier visitors and train passengers arriving at the attraction.

There will be a kiosk selling drinks and ice creams, with a window serving snacks through to an outside terrace.
