Southend: The Senior’s Playground Ria February 29, 2016 Local Offers, Southend Southend is full of activities, so be sure not to stay indoors this weekend as there is plenty of fun to be had on the coast. To help you decide what to do, c2c have compiled a list of great spots in Southend for seniors and we’ve picked out our favourites below: Cinema for £3.95 and a cup of tea You’ll definitely agree with us on the ridiculous prices of the cinema, right!? Prices have rocketed to over £10, which in the past could have brought you 2 cinema tickets and a bag of sweets. But, with the introduction of fancy 3D films, this is well and truly a thing of the past, or so we thought… The Odeon cinema have an amazing ‘silver senior’ deal which offer senior tickets for £3.95. You’ll also get a hot drink and biscuit thrown in for an even sweeter time. Catch the latest blockbuster for a fraction of the price that the grandkids have to pay! Get moving with the Southend Advantage Card With the nippy weather outside, we know how difficult it can be to heave ourselves out of bed, let alone go out to exercise or even a morning jog. Whilst we patiently wait for summer, leisure centres are the perfect option to get the heart racing. The Southend Leisure Centre has a huge variety of classes from relaxing yoga to a more crazy activity like body combat.
