Thames View Camping: Plenty of space

General

  • Family-run eco-friendly site on the banks of the Thames
  • A mile from East Tilbury village; 40 minutes' drive to Southend-on-Sea
  • Next to a nature park and on the Thames Estuary Path

Views of the Thames? Yes, very much so – Essex site Thamesview Camping is right on the banks of the mighty river, looking out over Coal House Fort in one direction and the Essex Wildlife Trust Thameside Nature Discovery Park.

A mere hour’s journey from London (by car or public transport – the rail station is a mile away), this is a prime spot for those seeking an easy escape from the capital, or guests hoping to mix up a city break with some rural fresh air. Waterside footpaths, cycle routes, birdwatching and fishing are all popular activities here, as is simply looking out over the water to see what you can see (there’s a colony of seals out there, and you may also spot Benny the Beluga swimming about…)

As this family-run space is primarily focused on the area’s natural attractions, it’s no surprise that the team have set it up to be as eco-friendly and peaceful as possible. No loud music is allowed here, and guests are encouraged to be mindful of the environment and each other, keeping dogs under control and following the countryside mantra of ‘leave no trace’. A local wildlife guide is on hand if you want to get to know your surroundings a little better.

Campfires are welcome too (or essential, some might say) and the folk on site can help out by selling you locally sourced firewood with virtually no carbon footprint. Other supplies for campfire cookery can be picked up a mile away in East Tilbury (or you could skip the cooking and head to the local pub, 10 minutes’ walk away, instead…)

Perfect getaway if you want total peace and quiet. Rx07/05/2021

    Peace and quiet. So quiet!!! Amazing pitches with so much space. Picnic table and fire pit supplied. The tall grass is cut for the pitches and makes a great divider so you are far away from your neighbours! And spotless toilets - enough for one for each pitch!!

    Disliked: 

    Not a dislike as such but it was a pain not to have firewood supplied on-site (only this season as I understand it). And we expected to be slightly nearer water. You can see the estuary if you walk a way out of the campsite but you can’t actually access it.

From the manager...

Hi Fiona,
Glad you liked our campsite. You can access the water to the left or right of the Ssi site directly behind the sea defence wall at the back of the site. We had been supplying wood free of charge as mentioned in previous reviews, unfortunately some campers had more of a bonfire than a campfire which deprecated the 12 tons we had delivered at the beginning of the month. We now have more wood in stock along with our heavy duty log splitter that was delivered this Saturday.
Hope to see you again. All the best.

    Super friendly owners! We felt so welcomed and cared for. Beautifully spaced crop circle like pitches, each came with a picnic table and a fire pit. The scenery was opened to 360 degrees, we saw amazing sunsets in this vast openness. The hot water shower was so lovely and the eco compost loos were clean. All the facilities had been well done. Really loved the location, short 30mins by train from London and took us about 30mins to walk from East Tilbury station. Along the way (10mis away from camp) there was a Co-op super market, Fish & Chips and a cafe. A short nature walk to this beautiful lake and also a local pub called 'The Ship'. The food there was great. We loved being amongst the endless nature walks with the beautiful sights of animals, building our own fire, cooking over it whilst star gazing above. We will definitely be back soon. Thank you for your hospitality.

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Start local by exploring the Thameside Nature Discovery Park, next to the site – footpaths and bike trails crisscross the 120-acre site with lots of wildlife to spot in this Site of Special Scientific Interest.

Alternatively, give your legs a really good stretch with a walk on the 27-mile Thames Estuary Path, which runs alongside the site. Stop by at the Coalhouse Fort (15 minutes’ walk) for a touch of glamour – it’s regularly used as a film location (perhaps most famously for Batman Begins).

The Thames opens out into the sea, of course – and not that far away, either. Set off for a seaside day with outings to Canvey Island (25 minutes’ drive) or Southend-on-Sea (40 minutes). Both have indoor attractions too, which is handy for less clement days – Canvey Island Transport Museum and Southend’s Sea Life Adventure are good picks for such times.

Must see

  • Rochester Castle (10.4 kilometres)
  • Rochester Cathedral (10.6 kilometres)
  • Dickens World (10.7 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Owletts (9.0 kilometres)
