Trains to Grays

Opened in 1854 as part of the London, Tilbury and Southend Railway, Grays station serves the Essex town of Grays in the borough of Thurrock - the station was originally known as Grays Thurrock. It underwent major refurbishment in the mid-2000s, when a new subway was built linking its three platforms. Situated on the Tilbury Loop, Grays is something of a commuter hub, with regular passenger services to Fenchurch Street in London, as well as Rainham, Ockendon, Southend and Shoeburyness in Essex. Grays has several claims to fame - it is the birthplace of comedian Russell Brand, and featured in the diary of Samuel Pepys. The town also made an appearance in a number of major films, including Four Weddings and a Funeral and Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Its main shopping area is on the north side of the station, and a short walk south will bring you to Grays Beach Riverside Park, on the banks of the Thames.

Grays station is accessible via entrances on both Station Approach and Crown Road. There are concourses with staffed and automated ticket facilities on both sides - use the Station Approach side for platform 1 (London via Chafford Hundred), and Crown Road for platform 2 (towards Southend) and platform 3 (London via Rainham).
