Where to Stay ?
Closest accommodations from the docks, within easy reach of London cruise passenger terminal, are located in the nearby towns of Grays Thurrock and West Thurrock, both located on the north bank of the River Thames and just a short distance away from the port.
The towns of Gravesend and Dartford are also nearby, but are located south of the River Thames. You need to cross the Dartford Crossing, one of the busiest estuary crossings in the UK. Vehicles must pay a toll and there can be traffic delays.
You can also consider a hotel in London near Fenchurch Street station. From here you can reach Tilbury in 45 minutes by train. Cruise & Maritime voyages provides also a coach service departing from Victoria coach station. Staying around Victoria Station is another option.
