Intu Lakeside

Reviewed By Hoppityskip - Basildon, United Kingdom

It would appear that Intu have decided to expand lKesibe, in itself no bad thing, but for heavens sake sort out the signage.
I have basically been parking in the same place since Lakeside opened, but went there last month to find the car park I use normally closed and I only discovered that when I came upon a dead end!
The peripheral Car parks are being used but loads of people wandering round looking lost trying to negotiate the path to the centre

Tilbury Fort

Tilbury Fort is possibly the finest example of a bastioned 17th Century artillery fortress in the Britsh Isles. Today visitors can visit the original Guardhouse, Chapel and Gatehouse buildings as well as the huge eighteenth century gunpowder magazines. You can also explore the Victorian underground magazine passages and imagine what life was like for a gunner in the late nineteenth century. There is a free audio guide, museum, exhibition and gift shop. Hot drinks and a range of light refreshments are available in the shop. There is an indoor Seating area in the old Guardhouse and picnic tables and benches outside.

Reviewed By SimonIG10 - Loughton, United Kingdom

Suggestion from my Wife. We had vsiited Coalhouse Fort years ago but never Tilbury. Loverly sunny day to wander around. Should have got the audio guide really. Bit of an oasis in a very industrial area. In remarkable condition. Must be a full time job cutting the grass. Could have done with a bit more to read on the history etc. Had lunch in the Worlds End as no snacks available in the fort. they do guided tours for a couple of quid and reckon this is the best way other than audio guide to get the most from your visit. Unfortunately the times didnt work for us.

Rainham Marshes

Reviewed By Pds1 - West Sussex

We stumbled up0n this by accident and am so glad we did. The staff were brilliant. Every single one of them so helpful and obviously very passionate about their work.
We took the 2.4 mile circular walk stopping off at all the hides. I particularly enjoyed the dragon fly pool.
We spent over 2 hours here and could have easily spent longer but as we hadn't been overly prepared we're starting to get hungry and thirsty so headed back to the information centre.
The cafe on site was lovely (with the most amazing shortbread!)
Again staff were extremely helpful while my husband bought some binoculars and we then decided to sign up for monthly payments to visit again at this or any other of the rspb centres around the country.
Can't wait to go again (armed with sun cream, hat and water!!)
Cannot recommend this highly enough

Grangewaters Outdoor Eduction Centre

Reviewed By Sian R

We spent a very enjoyable weekend in the Brecon Beacons for our Gold practice expedition - Oli and Rocky were absolutely fantastic - Hardworking, proactive and built great relationships with the students. Our students very much appreciated all their help and even wanted to take them on our assessment with us!
Further to that, I am very thankful that Grangewaters stepped in so last minute for us, due to another company pulling out close to our expedition dates.They were very understanding and helpful and we quite simply couldn't have gone without them!
Thank you!!

As a guest of the hotel I was
Lucky enough for the lovely Sophie (manager) to fit in me in a treatment at rather short notice. After a rather long flight I was given an excellent hydration facial and felt so much better.
Staff are really pleasant and the manager is so welcoming and sets a really high professional standard as for the products used I was really impressed as they are considered high end Environ and Espa. I was even given a very generous cup of salt scrub to try .
Really lovely experience and will definitely book in again

Thurrock Thameside Nature Park

Thurrock Thameside Nature Park is situated on the Thames Estuary and is fantastic for family days out, bird and ship watching, historical interest and getting away from the hustle and bustle. The views across the Thames Estuary are stunning, especially from our fully accessible rooftop viewing deck which offers 360 degree views of the nature park and Thames. The visitor centre has a café with full length windows for viewing the estuary, gift shop, toilets with baby changing and a bird hide with wheelchair access which overlook the SSSI mudflats a short walk away. We have a wonderful natural play and picnic area for families to enjoy. Dogs are welcome on leads and events are held throughout the year with free parking. The site which was once landfill and has been given back to nature is 120 acres at present and will eventually be 845 acres, it is a tremendous habitat for coastal and wetland wildlife, as well as very important grassland flora and fauna species. The Nature Park is important for many species including Barn Owls, Short Eared Owls, Water Voles, Harvest Mouse, Skylark, Cuckoo and Shrill Carder Bee. However, these are not the only beneficiaries, local Cattle also graze the grassland during the year. The area is an avian hotspot and throughout the year there are overwintering and migrant bird species residing at the park. There are internationally important numbers of Ringed Plover and Avocets and nationally important numbers of Grey Plover, Dunlin, Godwit and Redshank as well as a treasure trove of butterflies, moths and bees. Footpaths, bridleways and cycle ways access the Nature Park and we are on the Thames Estuary Path route which extends to 27 miles from Tilbury town through to Leigh on Sea.
