#AYearOfBuses 168: Southend Pier – Leigh-on-Sea

Southend bus 168

Fancy a trip to the seaside? Today on #AYearOfBuses, that’s exactly where we’re heading!

Go-Ahead London’s open top bus route in Southend traces a seafront route once ran by Southend Transport as their 68. It runs from Southend’s famous Pier, to nearby Leigh-on-Sea, boasting fantastic views of the promenade and estuary from a fleet of red and white open toppers.

Leigh’s charming old town features an array of quaint shops and pubs, whilst Southend is famous for not only its pier but The Kursaal, a Grade II listed building which opened in 1901 as part of one of the world’s first purpose-built amusement parks.
