Tilbury is a city in the borough of Thurrock, Essex, England. It was founded in late 19th century, on land which was mainly part of Chadwell Saint Mary. Tilbury contains an ancient cross-river ferry and a 16th century fort. It has a major deep-water port contributing to the local economy. The Port of Tilbury handles various bulk cargo, cars, container and timber traffic and remains, along with Felixstowe and Southampton, one of the three major container ports in Great Britain. It is also the main port in UK for importing paper, including newsprint. The Port of Tilbury group reopened the one-time passenger landing stage as London Cruise Terminal, though it's no longer served by the railway.
The majority of the city's inhabitants were employed in the docks until the introduction of standardised containers. The resulting loss of jobs was never made up, and today Tilbury has high unemployment and employment and education prospects are widely perceived as poor.
Highlights: London, Tilbury Fort, Audley End House & Gardens
