Tilbury is a town in the county of Essex in southeastern England, on the River Thames. 

There is evidence of Roman settlement here, but the town first began in the 12th Century. Due to its river location, it has been considered a valuable piece of a trade route since the Middle Ages.

Today, Tilbury is known for its historic fort, docks, marshes, and riverfront.
