European Grand Tournament Hotels and Where to Stay

European Grand Tournament 
Hotels and Where to Stay 

Ok here are some interesting facts about Southend

It suffered one of the first air raids of the First World War. Bombs were dropped by hand from giant Zeppelins LZ38 airships

How many beaches are there in Southend?.....They run from Shoeburyness to Leigh on Sea, starting with East Beach, Shoebury Common Beach, Jubilee Beach, Three Shells' Beach, Chalkwell Beach and Bell wharf Beach.

Southend is located in the driest part of the country,

The mystery of Thomas Richman’s buried treasure has gone unsolved since 1780. It is suppose to be buried somewhere in Essex

People living in Essex are 38% more lightly to be hit by falling aeroplane parts than anywhere else in Britain

During the witch hunt in the Middle Ages there were more reported witches in Essex than Devon and Cornwall combined

So after such pieces of history the question on everybodies mind is: Where to Stay?

I have placed some links below for accommodation near the venue.

 If in the search boxes for Holiday Inn, Park Inn and Premier Inn, type in the following post code SS5 4AD and it will bring up the closest hotel to the venue.
Unfortunately The Rochford Hotel is now fully booked (Thanks for the update MattH)  in the search window type in Southend on Sea with the dates and this will bring up a whole host of Hotels and Bed and Breakfasts.

For the Mid War Tournament most of us stayed at the Premier Inn which has a Harvestor attached to it. Also a 15-20 minute walk to the nearest resturants.

Matt Haywood stayed at the Rochford and recommends it highly.

Next update will be travelling to the event, this one will be a bit longer as trying to work out the flight locations extra and passport control for those up North :)

  1. Rochford hotel is fully booked up for the 21st of September, a wedding apparently. Shame really as it was a great hotel.
