Things to Do Around Roslin Beach Hotel

Thinking of booking your next vacation to Southend-on-Sea? Spend your holiday at Roslin Beach Hotel and discover everything that the surrounding area has to offer. Check out our itinerary below to learn the best way to spend 72 hours in Southend-on-Sea.

Day 1: Get Outside

Kick off your stay in Southend-on-Sea with a little exploring. Venture to Hadleigh Park and enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, kayaking, archery, paddleboarding, and more. With over 500 acres to explore, there’s guaranteed to be something for everyone to enjoy. Home to an Olympic mountain-biking course, Hadleigh Park once tested the biking ability of the best athletes in the world. Test the course yourself with over 11 miles of trails suitable for all ages and abilities. Explore the rich history, look for wildlife, and participate in a wide range of activities, all for free!

After a morning of trekking through the wilderness, continue enjoying the great outdoors on the golf course. Play a relaxing round at the 18-hole Thorpe Hall Golf Club, located five minutes from Roslin Beach Hotel.

End the day with a delectable meal at Roslin Beach Hotel’s exquisite restaurant, awarded two AA Rosettes. Savor the chef’s signature set menu and pair your meal with a selection from the extensive wine list. We also recommend coming back for the traditional Sunday roast.

Day 2: Adventure to New Heights

Tap into your inner kid on your second day in Southend-on-Sea. Head down to Adventure Island for hours of adventure, fun, and new memories. Perhaps the best admission-free theme park in the UK, Adventure Island offers a thrilling selection of rides and attractions to explore.

Start the day by experiencing each of Adventure Island’s creative roller coasters, categorized by thrill level and rider height so that you can strategically plan your exhilaration wisely. If heights aren’t your favorite, hit the Dodgem tent (bumper cars) and test your driving skills.

Spend the afternoon exploring Adventure Island attractions, indulging in themed dining experiences, and competing for prizes at the arcade. Test your driving skills on the track with Formula A.I. Karting and see who the speed racer of the family truly is.

Day 3: Discover an Underwater Planet

Dive into the uncharted waters of Southend-on-Sea and experience Sea-Life Adventure, one of the UK’s top aquariums. Discover exotic species, enjoy the thrill rides, and explore new depths of the ocean. New captivating exhibits open throughout the year that focus on education, preservation, research, and more.

After soaking up information about the sea, spend the remainder of your day at the beach. Roslin Beach Hotel is conveniently located across the street from Thorpe Bay, a sandy Blue Flag Beach. Relax beneath a shady umbrella and listen to the calming ocean waves while enjoying a good book.
