Tilbury Cruise Terminal and former Tilbury Riverside station
Tilbury Cruise Terminal and former Tilbury Riverside station
The large building on the left is the cruise terminal, that on the right the former station. The landing stage is used also by the Tilbury - Gravesend passenger ferry. Before the Purfleet - Dartford tunnel, it was a vehicle ferry, hence the heavy construction of the near hinging bridge connecting the floating landing stage to the shore. The cruise terminal dealt formerly with passenger liners, when serious travel by sea was usual. It was a PLA and LMS Railway joint venture, London passengers using boat trains to and from St. Pancras originally. Later, after electrification, the dwindling trade used Fenchurch Street, using special multiple units with large luggage capacity.
