  • Had a great day out at Tilbury Fort with my friend Lorraine. Thanks to Paul and Dan for letting us see the Moat x
  • One of the best remaining examples of 17th century coastal fortifications on the south coast, with a unique gunpowder magazine. Recently featured in several TV programmes. Well worth a visit and suitable for all ages.
  • A fascinating place to come. Easy to find with SatNav and plenty of parking spaces. Approach surface is rather uneven. Decent sized shop with a very knowledgeable member of staff. Our visit would have got 5 stars had it not been for restricted access to certain areas due to the site being used as a film location.
  • 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.
  • Lovely place and friendly staff .... very helpful and knowledgeable of the fort and it's history.... very clean and tidy ideal spots to have a picnic. Would defiantly recommended :)
