Cruises from Tilbury depart in the summer.
Once home to Charles Dickens, Tilbury features attractions like the 12th-century Rochester Castle and Tilbury Fort, with its collection of moats. Tour these sites or travel 30 miles west to London to see Westminster Abbey, St. Paul’s Cathedral and Buckingham Palace, where you can witness the changing of the guard ceremony. At the Tower of London, marvel at the British monarchy’s Crown Jewels, learn about the weaponry once used to defend this fortress and discover the legend of the resident ravens. Visits to Windsor Castle afford a look at Queen Mary’s Dolls’ House, while a cruise along the River Thames gives passengers views of the Shard skyscraper, Tower Bridge, Shakespeare’s Globe and more. For a bird’s-eye perspective of the Houses of Parliament and the Big Ben clock tower, enjoy a glass-capsule ride on the London Eye observation wheel.
