Had a nice little walk from our hotel down to the esplanade and saw a cargo ship entering the Thames and one leaving. Saw a little bit of sand but the water really isn't for paddling in

We moved to Canvey in 2015. We downsized to a bungalow five minutes from the beach. As a young boy in the 60s from London it was a day trip. The place degenerated over the years and it became seedy and dirty. However, with the...More

Hi I am trying to get hold of the number of the Leisure Island Fun park amusement to book a group visit. The number online 01268512444 is the incorrect number as we seem to be having trouble getting through.
