Serving Since 1872

Serving Since 1872

After the London, Tilbury and Southend Railway [LTSR] was completed in 1856, the railway developer leased the adjoining forty acres of land between the coast and the new railway for a new housing development; the Cliff Town.

Situated west of the existing Georgian Royal Terrace, the mid-Victorian estate was constructed by Banks and Barry between 1859-1861.Nelson Street was designed as the estate’s shopping arcade, and The Railway Hotel was built alongside shortly before 1872.

The Railway Hotel remains part of the Clifftown Conservation Area.
