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, Langdon Hills and Billericay! 


Sessions are 1hr and 15mins and cost £6.25 per toddler. There's no charge for adults or 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!

Wow! Cara hosted our daughter's 4th birthday party today and it was brilliant. The children all had a wonderful time and there was something for all of them to capture their imagination - the party lasted 2 hours and I reckon the children would happily have gone for another 2 hours.

500% recommended!

I took my 2 year old daughter to her first session of Little City on Monday and she loved it!! It was well organised, there was limited places to book so you didn't need to worry about it getting overcrowded. Would recommend this group to everyone, will definitely be going again soon!

A great set up of role play toys - everything a 1-5 year old would want to play with! Not overbooked numbers in the session so children could easily move around and enjoy themselves without being too crowded. Friendly and inviting and the snacks available to purchase was a nice touch so the little ones could take a break and refuel for more fun!

Thank you so much!

Parties at Little City

Looking for something different for a birthday party?


Hire Little City exclusively for up to 25 children. Let the birthday girl or boy be the mayor for the day and run the whole city for themselves and their friends!

Because Little City is a fully mobile role play centre it can be set up with minimal fuss and in almost any location. 

Contact me to check availability and to make your booking.

N.B. You'll need to book a hall or have a very large house !

I'm Cara, owner of Little City Southend!


Proud mummy to my two girls Evie aged 5 and Emelia aged 2 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'!
