Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.
Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Quite flat apart from the path down the cliff at Southend. Struck me as a safe-feeling walk for a single female to do. Lots to look at....
Lovely route along the sea front....
A relatively accessible beautiful walking route between Leigh on Sea and Southend. I walked it in the reverse direction but I don't think that makes any difference. It is a lovely wide easy walk through the pedestrianised Southend and then along the sea front....

It was high tide and the sea was close to the path, perhaps not a walk to do in stormy weather! Close to Southsea the path climbs stairs and steep slopes through park and gardens and along the cliff top with good views....
I really enjoyed this walk (and its one I’ve done many times.) It’s very flat and direct, with lovely sweeping views across the estuary. There are many places to stop for tea (lunch or snacks) on the way. If you’re a wheelchair user, as an alternative to going up to Westcliffe Parade through the gardens, you can keep on along the seafront/ Western Esplanade until you get to Southend Cliff Railway....
Alex Thornton surveyed Rocsou oneWalk this route
Footpaths are awful, overgrown, not cleared through farmers fields and large dips and curbs, narrow access making it impossible for wheels. Route is incorrect in two places, trying to use private roads or non existent footpaths...
