Tilbury Fort

Tilbury Fort is now open for you to visit. You will need to book your timed tickets in advance and tickets are available to book now. We have introduced limits on visitor numbers to help keep everyone safe, and you won’t be able to visit without your booking confirmation. If you’re a Member, your ticket will be free, but you still need to book in advance. There will be other new steps in place to ensure everyone’s safety, so your visit will be a little different.
