  • One of the reasons why tourists to travel to Gravesend is to reach the dock to catch a ferry to go on the other side of the River Thames to visit the fortress of Tilbury, built by Henry VIII. Last Saturday I left London with this intention but the day was so windy and the waves on the river so incredibly high that ferry rides were suspended. Water, muddy Brown, it was scary just to look at it from much that had moved. And to think that the Thames is only a river, although it is true that in Gravesend is now near the estuary. I ferried but I at least had the opportunity to see this old pier. Entering through the main door there is a long corridor at the end of which there is a restaurant which I found closed because it was too soon. The restaurant is spectacular and you can eat practically on the river. At the exit of the restaurant begins the walkway that goes until boarding the ferry.
