  • We intended on a visit to the pub( The worlds end) and the Fort at Tilbury but the fort was closed on Mondays and Tuesdays so we walked around the site and the location on the Thames is fabulous.  more »
  • So much to learn about and explore in this amazingly preserved and open fort. Be amazed at the weird geometrical layout of the fort, and discover why is was so innovative. Enjoy the hands on with the model bridge and the actual WW2 gun placement. Great audio tour with useful displays, parts of the site are almost perfectly preserved, others are just outlines on the ground, with a large site to walk and clamber around: it all combines well to a solid family outing. In the sunshine it is spectacular, I bet though that in the rain it would not be difficult to imagine how exposed the fort is.
  • Great place for seeing some artillery history. A big collection of guns and well restored magazine and fortifications. It'd be nice if all the guns were maintained a bit better, maybe the local reserve unit could help there.
