Item Details

Railway Hotel is situated at the end of Clifftown Road, in the Cliff Town conservation area of Southend-On-Sea, Essex. The building and business date from c.1868, and traded almost continually up to its current closure in Apr 2021.

The pub was originally called the Railway Tavern and addressed "Nelson Street" onto which it also abuts. Nelson Street was built in between 1859-1861 and was designed as the first shopping area for Southend before the High Street was developed. It would have been a busy area with the newly opened railway station across the road, and the perfect place to build a hotel and public house.

This A5 booklet contains 32 pages of fascinating information on each of the owners, landlords and landladies of the pub, with contents and index pages, and several illustrations, photographs, maps and newspaper articles.

 A mixture of history and genealogy, this booklet is a must for anyone with a connection to the Railway Hotel and Southend, or who simply enjoys a tipple!
