Victoria Circus is a large signal controlled crossroads at the end of the A127 in Southend.

For many years it was a roundabout with flowerbeds and mature trees, but in 2011 it was converted into a signalised crossroads in the middle of a large concrete plaza.


Victoria Circus is named after Queen Victoria, during whose reign, Southend-on-Sea developed. Queen Victoria signed Southend's Document of Incorporation in 1892, and the new approach to the town was called Victoria Avenue, meeting the old London-Southchurch Road (A13) at Victoria Circus, where Victoria railway station and hotels were also constructed.
