About Havens

Since 1901 a Quality Retailing Experience...

Havens of Westcliff, near Southend on Sea Essex was established in 1901 as a specialist retailer of China Tableware, Crystal Glass and Gift Shop.

Today the business is more than a China and Glass shop as Beauty Products, Perfume and Cosmetics, Jewellery, Home Ornaments and Accessories, Housewares and Kitchenware have been added, turning the Shop in to a retail variety department store - and now globally available online.

Havens is still very much a family business. The current Directors and owners are Nigel and Paul Havens both playing a day to day role.

With over 10,000 square feet of space on three floors, Havens provides an unrivalled assortment of quality items for the home and as gifts
