If you’re a fan of theme parks then consider getting yourself a Merlin Annual Pass. The annual pass offers entry into some of the UK’S top attractions including Alton Towers, Legoland, Chessington World of Adventures, London Eye and Sea Life Centres.

Normal theme park admission prices are in the region of £50 per person so you could potentially save money after just a couple of visits. Family pass is the cheapest at £109 per person (usually £139), individual passes are £129 (usually £179).

There are 10 attractions in London and the South East, all possible to do in a day trip from Southend, and another 20+ further a field. If you’re thinking of a ‘staycation’ this year, this could be a great way to see some of the UK’S top attractions … team with one of our hotel offers for a fantastic short break.
