Southend East railway station is on the London, Tilbury and Southend Railway line, serving the Southchurch area to the east of Southend-on-Sea, Essex. It is 36 miles 49 chains (58.9 km) down the main line from London Fenchurch Street via Basildon and it is situated between Southend Central to the west and Thorpe Bay to the east. Its three-letter station code is SOE.

It was opened in 1932.[1] The station and all trains serving it are currently operated by c2c.


Southend East has two through platforms. Platform 1 is typically for westbound trains towards London Fenchurch Street and platform 2 is for eastbound trains towards Shoeburyness; there is one disused bay platform.

Between May 1949 and February 1969 the station was named Southend-on-Sea East.[1] In April 2006, signs were erected with the label "Southend East for Southchurch Village" to better reflect its geographical location in the Southchurch area of Southend.[2]

During 2006, a £425,000 refurbishment programme was completed at the station, providing level access to the London-bound platform, as well as new toilets, baby-changing facilities, a redecorated waiting room with CCTV, and a self-service ticket machine.[3]

A ticket office is located adjacent to platform 1. It was completed in 2011 replacing the previous ticket office located adjacent to platform 2. It has one serving position and uses the TRIBUTE ticket issuing system.
