    An incredible structure with great views over the Thames. Keep an eye open for Eurostars and Javelins passing under the north ramp.

    This is best done in a car!! You can also cycle up to a command centre and they'll carry your bike across. Pedestrians can also take the X80 bus, which runs from Lakeside Shopping Centre.

    The first BOT(PFI) project in UK because of both public financial difficulty and shortage of the tunnel capacity. So, toll is levied. Without this, much tremendously heavier traffic jam troubles us!

    Great view from the top to the right across to Canary Warf on a clear day (but try to keep your eyes on the road ahead)

    In the 1960s, London Transport ran a cycle bus through the tunnel, i.e. a bus that carried cyclists and their bikes, but it was dropped in 1965 due to lack of demand.

    It's a bridge over a river, without it you will need to swim (southbound only)

    Always queues either side of the crossing - they're even widening the m25 on the Essex side as a result, when the real problem is the unnecessary tolls! Avoid at all costs.

    Don't use the M25 near the Dartford crossing! Ever!

    On the bridge at busy times, start on the left hand lane , it moves quicker

    Use the left hand lanes. They generally flow faster.

    remember to have £1.50 ready for the toll. correct change is best as those queues are normally shorter

    It's free after 10pm, that makes 9.59 crossings a real rip off!! £1.50 before which is also a rip off at any time seeing the bridge and tunnel were paid off many years ago and now it's just profit!!
