Southend Central Station

This is the official NCP car park for Southend Central Station. It offers quick and direct access to all four platforms and is ideal for commuters who want somewhere convenient to leave their cars. The station is part of the London, Tilbury and Southend Railway Line, with services running to and from London Fenchurch Street Station.

The Southend Central Station NCP has over 130 bays, with four specifically designated for disabled drivers. It offers affordable parking 24 hours a day, seven days a week and there are season ticket options available for frequent users. Cards are accepted at the Southend Central Station NCP, so you don’t have to worry if you don’t have cash to hand.

The top attraction in Southend, and in fact its main claim to fame, is its famous pier. Almost 1.5 miles long, this is the longest pier not only in the UK but in the world. If you don’t feel up to walking that distance, you can catch the train that runs its full length.    

Southend began its rise to prominence as a resort in the genteel Georgian era, because of its proximity to the capital, and many of its grand mansions date from this period. Despite extensive redevelopments in Southend, forced on it because of a decline in tourism, much of its bracing seaside atmosphere remains and visitors continue to have a most enjoyable break here. However, parking in Southend is a challenge, especially in the summer. So if you’re heading here for a day beside the seaside, why not take the worry out of parking and book your space online in advance?

NCP’s Southend car park at Central Station is pre-bookable and puts you right in the middle of the action, close to all the attractions and local transport options.      

Southend Central Station Parking

One of two mainline stations serving Southend-on-Sea, Southend Central Station connects directly with London’s Fenchurch Street. Opened in 1856, the station has a covered bicycle storage rack, and the NCP Central Station Southend car park is a handy place to leave your car. 

University of Essex, Southend Campus Parking

The Southend campus of Essex University was opened in 2007 and continues to develop rapidly. The Gateway Building, which houses workshops, studios, and a theatre, was formerly a church, with student accommodation close by. NCP Central Station is a handy spot for visitors to the campus to leave their vehicles.  

High Street Parking

The High Street is the centre of the town’s retail sector, lined with high street names as well as an abundance of independent outlets. The NCP Central Station Southend car park is within easy walking distance, and means you don’t have far to carry your shopping bags.
