This is a reasonably new country park on the Thames Estuary overlooking the new Superport. The round visitor centre has a gently sloping ramp going all the way round, rather like a helter skelter, which enables access to the roof. There is a free to view (donations welcome) telescope at the top which is on a raised platform so not accessible to wheelchairs unfortunately, but even without it you can see for miles. The inside is similarly ramped and access inside is good. There is a small cafe with adequate space between the tables. Outside as well as paths leading over the country park there are sculptures and a lovely wooden childrens play area, also accessible. A lot of thought has gone in to the design of this centre and it works. My only quibble might be there are small draught sills on the doorways to negotiate, but because it is on a windy river site these are necessary for comfort.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
I would recommend this for a visit. Although we didn't go down any of the trails on our blustery visit we spent some time looking at and taking photos of the rabbit sculptures which abound near the car park.
