Welcome to the project website for the proposed £50 million transformation of the Seaway site.

Turnstone Estates has submitted an application to transform Southend’s Seaway site and create a fantastic family leisure experience that everyone can enjoy all year round - whatever the weather! The scheme includes a state-of-the-art 11-screen Empire Cinemas complex with IMAX, a 80 room Travelodge Hotel, a 20 lane Hollywood Bowl, other leisure and restaurant offerings, 555 public car parking spaces and a new public square.

The regeneration of Seaway presents an opportunity to revitalise the town centre and build a better Southend. With high profile anchor tenants already signed up and many more to be named, Seaway Leisure will bring an additional £15 million to the local economy every year and create around 500 jobs adding value for the whole community. We have increased the number of proposed parking spaces to 555 which will accommodate visitors to both Seaway Leisure and Southend’s seafront.

Turnstone is proud to be investing £50 million in the long-awaited regeneration of Seaway and support the Southend 2050 Vision to secure Southend’s future.
