Fourth time using the Tilbury-Gravesend ferry. Good value for the short crossing. Excellent link between Essex and Kent; saves me the hassle of going all the way to London in order to go home to Thanet.

Incredible the journey across the River Thames includes a sighting of a white whale which is now part of the tourist excursion. Crew very helpful to give you a guided tour of the whales habitat.

We used this service one sunny Saturday to get across to Tilbury to visit the fort. Short and sweet. Good value.

Unplanned journey home after the Dart Crossing was closed after a major RTC and very handy when working in Tilbury for the afternoon when you live in Gravesend. Very efficient, simple 5 min crossing and you can pay by card. Have not used the ferry...More

On the actual huge pontoon where you board the ferry, all day free parking ? Advise early parking ie 9.45am for a 10.15 am ferry
