Out & about around Delightful Tea Bake School

Thinking of staying in the area and exploring Essex? There’s so much to see and do in the local area and beyond! Here are some links to shopping, reputable accommodation, dining and local attractions to make your visit even more exciting!


Edes is a family run business established in 1971 selling a range of electrical products. Their Leigh on Sea store sells an extensive selection of baking and cookware products from leading brands. We love the personal service that you just don’t get at the high street chains! We recommend going in to browse, but if you’re short on time you can buy online or use their nifty click and collect service.

Southend High Street is packed full of big names to whet the appetite of any shopaholic! With stores including Marks and Spencer, Debenhams and Next among many others, you should have no trouble finding what you need. There are also numerous chain and independent food outlets to take the weight off after some retail therapy.

Leigh Broadway is full of small retailers, hair and beauty salons, cafes, bars and restaurants catering to all tastes and budgets. It is close some wonderful views of the estuary and beyond.

Thorpe Bay Broadway is a low rise high street offering a mixture of shopping, dining and pampering options, all close the stunning views of the eastern Esplanade.


Placed close to the seaside, there’s a wealth of accommodation options to suit all budgets, but to get you started, here are just a few…

You can reach Delightful Tea by car or by train.

Travelling by car? We are easily accessible by road and have ample onsite free parking for our guests.

C2C runs regular services to Shoesburyness from London Fenchurch Street, and we are located only five minutes drive from Shoesburyness mainline station. Upon arrival at Shoeburyness station you can easily get a taxi to take you the short distance to our studio, either by picking up a waiting licenced cab or by calling a local company.

It is possible to walk from the station to our studio in around 20 minutes, but we highly recommend that you take an inexpensive taxi as parts of the route are fairly rural.
