Oncology massage – Southend local information
Southend-on-Sea is a resort town on the Thames Estuary in Essex with a population of 181,800. Southend-on-Sea originally consisted of a few poor fishermen’s huts and farms at the southern end of the village of Prittlewell. But in the 19th century, Southend’s status of a seaside resort grew after a visit from Princess Caroline of Brunswick, and Southend Pier was constructed.
