Our Festival is mostly taking part at South Essex College, at the Luker Road, Southend campus. It is in the middle of the town with ample parking nearby as well as two rail stations (one linking to Southend Airport and both to London) as well as bus routes. See more about the campus and its location here.
We have a limited number of single ensuite rooms in the University of Essex Halls, right next to our venue, at a good price. Please see the Forms/Booking page here for our Early Bird Accommodation offer. And you can find out a bit more about the University and local attractions here.
Southend is also a tourist venue year-round and has a number of hotels, guest houses, B&Bs and other options for you to stay in nearby or slightly further out, especially useful if you want more than a single room. There are many sites such as Tripadvisor or Hotels.com or AirBnB you can use to find and book somewhere suitable, but you can get an overview of what's available on the Visit Southend website. This site also has useful sections on travelling to Southend and what to see, if you fancy staying for longer than just our Festival!
