Thurrock Services

Opened: 1990
Original owner: Granada
Current Owner: Moto
One site, located in unusual location accessible by both M25 and A13 between two roundabouts

When first opened, the main building was not complete so a temporary
restaurant and shop was provided in a very large portacabin.

First (and possibly still the only) site that has Accomodation within the main complex.

Built on slope, so you enter at the top across a “dry moat”. Once inside you can use the shops on that floor or decend the stairs to the toilets

This site currently has a 5 Star Loo of the year Award 2003 along with 33 others in the road transport category. (find best loos overall)

Thanks to Simon of Sabre for some the trivia on this page
