Welcome to Little City Southend! The original and award winning mobile role-play experience for your toddler!

Designed especially for confident walking age to 5 years (6 years in school holidays), your little one can pretend to be a vet, firefighter, hairdresser, builder, run their own cafe and much much more in each of the 10 different areas of our purpose built street! With carefully selected high quality toys and limited numbers per session your toddler has the space and opportunity to explore freely and immerse themselves in their own Little City!

As we are completely mobile, you'll find Little City Southend set up at various locations across the SS postcodes including Southend, Westcliff, Leigh-on-Sea, Benfleet and Langdon Hills!

Sessions are 1hr and 15mins and cost £7.95 per toddler. There's no charge for non-walking siblings, no termly fees and a discount for booking 3 or more children together for the same session. There's always a selection of hot and cold drinks and snacks on offer too so you can enjoy a tasty treat while your little one plays!

Spaces must be booked in advance using the booking page I'm very lucky to have customers return to the city again and again, parents telling me they have just as much fun as their little ones! I always love meeting new faces too so I do hope to welcome you at Little City soon!

Little City Southend is also available for private party hire and pre school/nursery and school hire so contact me at for more information!

I'm Cara, owner of Little City Southend!

Proud mummy to my two girls Evie aged 7 and Emelia aged 4 we live together in Essex with our little dog Bella!

After leaving my job in London to enjoy time with my girls and being able to take them to a variety of groups and classes I developed a real passion for the industry. After discovering Little City and attending our first session with Vicki in Colchester, I fell in love with the Little City concept, its uniqueness and appeal to little ones and parents alike. I immediately contacted Vicki about franchising in the Southend area as I knew this would be the perfect opportunity for me!

Since opening in November 2019 I have been so lucky to meet so many lovely families, I've enjoyed every second and am proud to be a part of such an amazing supportive team of people who share the same passion! It also allows me to work around my family so I couldn't ask for any more, I love Little City and its even better knowing my children say mummy has 'the best job ever'!


Little City Online Shop!

The toys we buy for our cities are ones that we think not only look good, provide lots of wonderful play opportunities, but are also are built to last.

All the products available in the online shop are items that we've tried and tested: the kids love them, and we love them so much, we want you to be able to take them home (and we know they're durable as they get a LOT of play at our sessions!)
