Benfleet station is right on East Haven Creek, one of a collection of waterways which separates Canvey Island in the Thames Estuary from the mainland of south Essex. The station opened in 1855, contributing to the development of Canvey Island during Victorian times into a popular seaside resort for day-trippers and holiday makers from London. Further seafront development took place in the 1930s and the modernist Labworth Cafe survives from that time.
