Tilbury in detail

The Port of Tilbury is home to the London Cruise Terminal, the city's only deep water purpose-built cruise facility. It is located in south-eastern England at the head of the River Thames estuary, 30 miles to the east of London, near the M25. London and its sights are the main attractions and the centre can be reached by car or coach but there are also places of interest nearby.

Just a few minutes walk from the Terminal, Tilbury Fort is the finest and best preserved example of 17th century military engineering in England. Throughout the 18th and early 19th centuries, Tilbury and the batteries at Gravesend across the river, formed the first line of defence for the Thames and London. Audley End House & Gardens was built by the first Earl of Suffolk, Lord Treasurer to James I, on the scale of a great royal palace and indeed became one when Charles II bought it in 1668. The landscaped park was created by Capability Brown.
