Getting tested in Thurrock

There are plenty of ways to get a coronavirus test in Thurrock with sites and centres available across the borough.


As well as making sure there are several options for anyone who has any COVID-19 symptoms there are specific locations where those who have to work outside their home can pick up a test.

If you have symptoms of COVID-19 you can:

  • book an appointment to go to one of the two drive through sites in Grover Walk, Corringham or Crown Road, Grays – both open 9am to 3pm
  • book an appointment to go to the walk-through site in Grays Beach car park
  • simply turn up at the test centre at Tilbury Cruise Terminal with no booking required. This test centre is open 9am to 3pm every day

If you have to work outside your home you should get a test whether you have symptoms or not. You can do this by:

If you are booking ahead for the test centres in Grays or Corringham please bear in mind that appointments for the following day are only released the evening before, usually around 8pm, so it is best to try to book your appointment after this time. If you try to book earlier in the day, you may instead be offered test sites which are further away and outside of the borough. You can just turn up at the Tilbury site between 9am and 3pm without having to book.
