Love Southend’s favourite pick of Instagrams this month in no particular order:


A special evening for #Southend #carnival & our Mayor at Porters. Big plans for 2015. Come and be part of the #brazilarte team

There’s so much that I just love about this photo. The eerie lighting makes this photograph look like a scene from a strange murder mystery “whodunnit” weekend. The Mayer of Southend looks fantastic in this photo, accompanied with the Rossi bear, discussing the 2014 Southend Carnival this year. Can’t wait for the 2015 Carnival in Southend!


#sun #sunset #sea #boats #beach #southend #southendpier #essex #clouds #evening

Beautiful photo of the sun setting over Southend, with Southend Pier in the background and fishing boats on the water. I love the reflection of the sunset and the sky looks so soft!


Lone #train in the #yard #blackandwhite #Southend #class321 #electricmultipleunit

Quite a creepy black and white photo of a lone train in Southend train yard. Amazing use of the vignette and the foggy background just adds to the eeriness of this photo! Beautifully captured.



It was difficult to find my favourite photo of the Southend Christmas Lights Switch On from this month, but the Santa in this photo just makes this my favourite. Was a brilliant day with all sorts of festive smells and activities going on throughout Southend High Street. The crowds were huge; the High Street was simply packed. Brilliantly organised; well done to all those involved.


Throwback #southendonsea

This is a rather sweet photo of our Southend seaside with the Pier in the background. With the sparkly lights and the heart-shaped hand gesture…. Reminds me of how much I love our seaside town town <3


#ClifftownParade #Southend #SouthendOnSea #SouthendSeafront #Westcliff #WestcliffOnSea #WestcliffParade #LestWeForget #WeWillRememberThem #Poppy #Poppies #RememberThem #WorldWarOne #WW1 #Veterans #Heros #NoFilter

Wonderful to see the number of poppies placed upon the commemorative statue  on Clifftown Parade on Remembrance Day this year, in honour of all those heroic men of Southend-on-Sea during the Great War.


Fab day at #Southend watching the #Snowman & #Snowdog turn on the #Christmas lights. Then down to the seafront to see the #Fireworks display! #TopEvening well done #Southend #Essex

Fantastic collage of the Christmas Lights Switch On in Southend this month! The fireworks were amazing and, though The Hoff sadly couldn’t make it to switch on the lights, we did have the Snowman and Snowdog! Southend’s Christmas tree and Christmas-on-Sea decorations are awesome!


Here’s one pretty little mermaid looking for her Prince charming Model: @electrakubrick MUA: @filmspecialfx_charli_b Necklace: @atomiclace Rings: @galaxyroxjewellery Tail: The2tails

We seem to have a mermaid washed up on our beaches this month! I have to give credit to this stunning model who is still able to look so gorgeous in this cold weather! It’s not every day that you get to see a beautiful mermaid on Southend beach, so this definitely deserves a place in this month’s Top 10!




Panto float 2014 #southendonsea #workdays #panto #parade

The Southend Christmas Parade on Saturday was spectacular! What an amazing display of talents and a great way to get everybody excited about Christmas. The pirate ship from the Peter Pan panto made me so excited for the panto at Cliffs Pavilion this month! The children were all so excited in the crowds, waving their little David Hasselhoff flags and cheering on the parade. Well done to everybody involved!


#southendonsea #christmaslights #christmas

So difficult to choose between all of the wonderful Christmas light photos of Southend this month. But I absolutely love the Christmas-on-Sea sign over the bridge, coupled with the High Street Christmas light decoration in foreground. Make sure to check out our guide on Christmas Events in Southend 2014 for things to do during the festive season!


And our favourite photo of the month from Love Southend’s Instagram!
