Step 1: Welcome to the Tilbury to East Tilbury section of the Thames Estuary Path, which begins at Tilbury Town train station.
Step 2: The Thames Estuary Path is a 30 mile route from Tilbury to Southend, taking you past Thameside Forts, ancient Churches, through Thames Marshes and along the sea wall overlooking internationally important marshes and mudflats.
Step 3: All Thames Estuary Path walks are shadowed by the C2C railway line, making it extremely accessible by train. Trains run between Shoeburyness and London Fenchurch Street, via Southend, Basildon and more local stations.
Step 4: Turn right out of Tilbury Town station. If you’re coming by train, exit out of the station on the Platform 1 side.
Step 5: We begin with a short stretch along St Andrews Road. Follow the pavement with the wall on the right.
Step 6: Keep your eyes peeled for these Thames Estuary Path signs and stickers marking the route as you go along today.
