This Essex resort straddles the Thames estuary and incorporates many towns, such as Chalkwell, Eastwood, Leigh-on-Sea and Thorpe Bay. Good rail and road links with London make this a commuter town for many people. The A13 and A127 both lead into London, linking up with the M25 on the way.
The sea front ensures plenty of part-time and seasonal work but also encourages a number of arts and leisure events all year round. The spin-off is the jobs created in the hotel, food and drink industries. Its location on the "Thames Gateway" also means a number of careers close by in the distribution and freight markets. Southend Airport has become an integral part of the area's infrastructure.
