Street parking is available near Roots Hall and at Southend High School for Boys (SS0 0RG).

PUBS

If it's a nice enough day, a walk along Southend's promenade has a decent selection of pubs. We went to a place called Chinnerys which was reasonably priced with decent music. The Blue Boar pub on Victoria Avenue (where Southend were founded in 1908) is a good option for somewhere closer to the stadium.

Roots Hall was originally built on a landfill site which caused havoc with the drainage of the pitch having been laid above thousands of tonnes of compacted rubbish. The pitch had to be re-laid in 1956 and a proper drainage system installed to combat the problem.
