Southend Central to London Fenchurch Street

Whether you're travelling for work or play, c2c's most popular route in and out of Essex could be just the ticket for you, your friends and family. 

Connecting London with the busiest town in Essex, c2c trains run from Southend Central into the capital over five times an hour during peak times, and four every hour off-peak, providing a frequent and fast rail service for all kinds of customers. City 2 Coast trains on this route also serve the eastern London boroughs, stopping at Upminster, Barking and West Ham, connecting passengers with the London Underground at these stops.

With Southend Central to London Fenchurch St express trains taking under an hour to reach Fenchurch Street, it has become a popular route for those looking to move out of London and travel in, as well as becoming an important asset for the local Essex tourism.

Southend is a popular seaside town in Essex and provides plenty of entertainment - from the Southend Pier to the Adventure Island - for those looking for a day out without travelling to traditional beach hotspots in the UK.
