The Port of Tilbury is home to London's only deep water purpose-built cruise facility, the London International Cruise Terminal. Situated at the gateway to London - just 22 nautical miles down river from Tower Bridge - the historic Grade II* listed Terminal is in an ideal location close to the heart of the City.
Tilbury has become increasingly popular as a turnaround port for Baltic and Northern European destinations but it is also perfectly placed for transit calls to visit England's capital city. The M25 is 7 miles away offering easy access for coach excursions to Central London (25 miles), historic Rochester (27 miles) and Leeds Castle (38 miles). London's principal airports - Heathrow, Gatwick Stansted and London City - are within an hour's drive of the Terminal and Tilbury town station, on the C2C main line Shoeubyrness to London Fenchurch Street line, is one mile away.
