Shuttle from Heathrow to Tilbury Port
Tilbury Port is located in Essex, England, on the River Thames and it is Londonâs main port. Moreover, it represents a great means for importation of paper, grain and cars. Tilbury Port is also an extremely appreciated touristic location especially for its Cruise Terminal. Passengers can select between UK or European cruises.
If you decide to visit its surroundings, you can choose between several hotels that are situated only a few miles from Tilbury Port. Some examples are: Holiday Inn Exp Dartford Brdge (University Way Kent, Dartford Kent England, DA1 5PA), Bexleyheath Marriott Hotel (1 Broadway, Bexleyheath DA6 7JZ) and Mary Rose Inn Hotel (36 High Street, Orpington, Orpington, BR5 3NJ).
Tilbury Port is rather poor when it comes to local attraction, being chosen usually for the Marco Polo cruise ship. However, if you decide to dedicate a few hours, make sure to visit the Tilbury Fort (Fort Road, Tilbury RM18 7NR, England). It gives you the possibility to see one of the finest 17th century fortresses.
Feel free to enjoy its original buildings (Guardhouse, Chapel and Gatehouse) and the Victorian store that is situated underground. You can take advantage of the free audio guide for a more detailed trip. You can also take a break from exploring and have a fresh beverage or a hot coffee indoors or at the outside vintage picnic tables.
Another rather appreciated attraction is a âspookyâ one: Coalhouse Fort, built in the 80âs that was meant to protect the English against the French attacks. Nowadays, besides being a very important historical heritage, it is also known for its annually Halloween event and other special days, when groups of professional actors or amateurs and volunteers try to bring shouts of terror and also joy to the visitors.
