About Us

Southend Museums comprise five sites throughout the Southend-on-Sea borough…

Southend Central Museum & Planetarium, located in central Southend next to Southend Victoria Rail Station, houses a newly-refurbished exhibition space, a Planetarium and a gift shop.

Beecroft Art Gallery, located next to Central Museum, is home to exciting local art, costume and social history collections.

Prittlewell Priory, located inside Priory Park, is a Cluniac monastery in serene surroundings.  Pop into the gift shop and grab a drink or snack to enjoy in the park.

Southchurch Hall, located inside Southchurch Hall Gardens, is a medieval moated manor house.  Grab a drink or snack in the gift shop, and feed the ducks in the gardens beyond.

The Historic Cliff Lift, located on the seafront, provides a novel way of climbing the landscape – travel in (old) style!
