Tilbury has been a port since ancient times and is now the main container port for London. It was here in 1588 that Queen Elizabeth I famously pointed out that although she had the body of a weak and feeble woman she also possessed the heart and stomach of a king. Her comments were made in a speech to troops setting out to defeat the Spanish Armada. Earlier the huge Tilbury Fort had been built to prevent invasions from Holland and France.
