Pocket Guide: Thurrock Coalhouse Fort Hotels

Coalhouse Fort is located on the banks of the Thames in the village of East Tilbury in Essex. Constructed in the 1860s, this impressive fortification was designed to protect England from seaborne attack by the French. Coalhouse Fort was also in use for the two World Wars, its defences updated accordingly - for example, a Bofors 40mm anti-aircraft gun was installed on the roof of the fort in 1943. If you're staying in any nearby Essex hotels, Coalhouse Fort makes for a fascinating day out and a great place to learn about Britain's defensive history.

Explore Britain's Military Past from Hotels in Essex

Today, Coalhouse Fort is run entirely by volunteers who took over management of the site in 1983. Thanks to the Coalhouse Fort Protect, the fort is open to the public every last Sunday of the month between March and September and most bank holidays, so if you're staying in nearby hotels in Essex you should time your visit accordingly. As well as guided tours and displays of military paraphernalia, Coalhouse Fort runs a series of open days throughout the year, including a classic vehicle day in July.

East Tilbury, the nearest village, also has a railway station, and it is a roughly 15-minute walk from there to reach the fort.
