The Gravesend to Tilbury Ferry operates daily from 05:40am to 19:00pm. The crossing takes only 5 minutes and is a great way to visit Essex and the surrounding counties.
Cross the river and jump on a Train to southend and within 1 hour you could be enjoying the Sea side and fun fair rides on the beach.
For many years paddle steamers such as the “Medway Queen” have offered trips across the Thames Estuary to the world’s longest pier at Southend. Join us on this fantastic day out to once again have fish and chips on the beach, visit Adventure Island or ride the train to the end of the pier. Time ashore will vary depending on tides but we aim to give you about 4-5 hours of free time.
