Old Leigh

Reviewed By mikepaterson - Essex, England

I regularly cycle to Old Leigh. It is s lovely place that retains a quaint old world charm. It is often very busy and that is not surprising given the bars, restaurants and cockle sheds. The CAMRA multi award winning Mayflower Pub ( named after the ship that took the Puritans from Leigh and other places to America) offers great real ales and fantastic fish and chips, and there are Beaches, boats and lovely country walks. Not to be missed.

Belfairs Wood, Park and Nature Reserve

Reviewed By keith l - Leigh-on Sea, United Kingdom

I doubt you could find anywhere better than Belfairs Wood and Nature reserve. Wide open spaces great forest walks and so special if you take children or just go with your dogs. Beautiful outside Seating area so calm and peaceful, and extremely friendly staff serving homemade cakes and produce that is so reasonably priced. I took young friends but have also taken elderly relations and its so good for either age group.

Hadleigh Farm - Rare Breeds Centre

Reviewed By Tad666 - Essex, England

I visited the farm with my Grandchildren and they loved it, seeing the animals and feeding them too. They also thoroughly enjoyed the adventure playground with the farm.
Afterwards when the children have exhausted themselves walk up to the Café and have a cappuchino and a stick bun adults have got to have a bit of fun????.
The farm has history and it is told on boards around the farm I was not aware that the Sally Army did this for the menfolk of Victorian times, but we all have to learn something new every day.

Genting Casino

Reviewed By elainelondon1956 - London

Our friends suggested we go here as they said it’s very reasonably priced and the food is good. We sat down in the almost empty restaurant and were offered a set Sunday menu. Both of the men in our party are pescatarians and the choice of good for them was basically take it or leave it. Literally just one choice of vegetarian food. We asked if there was any fish or other alternatives and were told no. We weren’t offered an a la Carter menu either. Obviously at that point we left and won’t be returning.

We've had birthday parties here, visited after school and attended when a stunt scooter crew were in attendance. Although some of the young staff can be distracted at times and not watch the children closely enough, as a parent we always make sure we know where they are are what they are doing.
The SNS evening was virtually empty so keep your eyes peeled for special events!

Palace Theatre

Reviewed By brian t - Southend-on-Sea, United Kingdom

What a rare treasure for southendians! a beautiful old building that hasn't been pulled down or derelict! A good rake ensures all have a good view of the stage, and with a good range of amateur and professional productions and even a small studio for more specialist productions, there is over a course of time something for everyone. It is always a joy to visit and feel part of its history, long may it continue.

Leigh Heritage Centre

Reviewed By OldBear - Lancashire, England

I enjoyed my visit to this small Heritage Centre where there is a lot of history on display. This priceless heritage consists of Photos, documents and memorabilia about local life over the past hundred years all crammed around a few small rooms.
There is also a Fishermans Cottage dating from the 1850's that is accessible from the Heritage Centre that has been restored to how it was at the time. With only four small rooms it gives an idea of how life was for a family of perhaps six or seven living there.
Access to everything is free, but they do ask for a small donation which is important to be able to keep it running in the future.
