This short toddler-friendly walk around Tilbury passes the famous 17th century World’s End pub and the site of the devastating floods of 1953, as well as Tilbury Ferry, which dates from the 16th century. The walk also passes the Passenger Terminal, through which many thousands of passengers passed on their way to new lives in Australia as £10 Poms, or arriving in Britain from the Caribbean on the Empire Windrush.
*Please note, part of this walk (Fort Road) is closed due to work on Tilbury 2 (Port of Tilbury Expansion), and will not be re-open until 2020.*
