There’s a visit to East Tilbury and a tour around ‘Bataville’ first, before heading to Horndon-on-the-Hill. We end with a part circuit of Langdon Hills, the highest ground of Beach of Dreams.

This walk joins T100 Dreaming walking festival until East Tilbury.  To book on the shorter, 3.5 mile, T100 walk go here.

Walk Guidelines

There are two official meeting locations per day; at the start and near the mid-point. If you only wish to walk your one-mile stretch and join the walking party as it comes through your section, you can specify to meet ‘at my mile’ on the booking form (which should have been emailed to you already).

If you are meeting ‘at my mile’, please understand it is difficult for us to specify the exact time the main walking party will arrive. To help you estimate this, use the scheduled times below and add 30 mins per mile to get to your mile. We are using a walking speed of 2 miles an hour as a guide.

If you don’t receive any emails about the walks, please check your spam folder or email info@beachofdreams.co.uk


Please be on time.

Route: Walk 30

The pink route line is the T100 festival walk

 Please note: The routes and mile markers were mapped in February. It is possible that some changes will be needed before the walk itself takes place, for example because of temporary path closures, weather events, and tidal conditions. If there are changes, we will walk an alternative route that is as close as possible to the planned route, and keep the mile markers as close to the originals too. If route lines appear to stray off public rights of way, this will not happen in reality and route lines will be adjusted as more accurate information from walk leaders is available. ‘Miles’ at the start and end of days may be slightly more or less than one mile.
