Tilbury walk to join the carnival at Tilbury Cruise Terminal
This walk happened on Sat 20th July but you can follow the walk yourself using the information below.
Walk 15 of T100 Welcome to the Kitchen Table
Following a short walk from Tilbury Station to Anchor Field, stopping along the way at points of interest including the Old Cinema and Civic Square, this final day of ‘Welcome to the Kitchen Table’ coincided with Tilbury Carnival, inspired by the town’s local heritage and role within our national story through Empire Windrush.
The parade, made up of local community groups, began at 11am on Anchor Field in Tilbury Town and ended at the Tilbury Cruise Terminal on Dock Road approximately two hours later. The Cruise Terminal also hosted a wide variety of workshop activities and performances throughout the day.
Walkers were invited to walk with the carnival parade and enjoy the activities at Tilbury Cruise Terminal throughout the afternoon, including a shared lunch and community performances.

T100 walks are of different lengths and on different terrain. Some are mainly on footpaths, and others mainly on footpaths where ground may be uneven. If this walk doesn’t suit you, there is probably another one that will.
You need to choose walks within your capabilities; the walk leaders are experienced but must take your word that you are sufficiently fit for the grade of walk you have chosen.
Due care has been exercised in organising the walks, however Kinetika, the funders and associated partners of the project cannot accept liability for loss, accident or injury caused to any person following the routes. Participants under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
What to bring
Please ensure that you are properly equipped for all walks. The weather can be unpredictable so bring waterproof clothing and/or sun hats and sun cream – it’s best to be prepared for everything!
Walking boots/shoes are recommended, but otherwise please wear suitable and comfortable footwear- best to leave open-toe sandals or high heels at home. Make sure you bring a packed lunch, if necessary, and plenty to drink.
