Cruises from Tilbury
Tilbury is a modern deep-water port in Essex, England, bordering the Thames River, about 30km upstream from the river mouth and 40km downstream from London Bridge. The Tilbury Docks are branch off the north side of the river via three locks. It is a strategic logistics location: the principal commercial port for London, and London’s only Cruise Ship Terminal. It is one hour by road from London Gatwick and London Heathrow airports.
Interestingly, during the 1960s Tilbury was the point of emigration of ‘Ten Pound Poms’ to Australia, as well as a major immigration point.
