  • An excellent way to spend 2-3 hours. We took the guided tour which for an extra £2 each and it was well worth it. The staff were great and the grounds were clean and tidy. I loved the themed rooms. If you like history or forts, don't miss out.
  • Enjoyed our visit. Good introduction to site by ticket office staff. Interesting to see the magazine and the crane. Good space for children. Take the 99 bus from the town station - the road is a bit busy for a walk.
  • The fort itself looks good and has things to look at but the surrounding ground is crap. Literally thousands and thousands of dog piles littering all the paths and trails surrounding the fort it also looks like there's been bags of nails emptied on the cycle lane surrounding too. There horses fenced however walking around Tilbury it feels like the locals just allow the horses to defecate all over the town. It's an absolute disgrace. Not happy. Fort looks good though.
  • Great place for the family. If you are interested in some history and have a couple of hours to spare, this is the place for you. We loved it
  • My son and I loved it!! Even got to see the 42nd regiment recreating scenes from battles
