If you're an out of towner and not familiar with Canvey itself, Canvey Island is an actual island of some seven square miles lying just off the South Coast of Essex in the Thames Estuary. Because it's below sea level the whole island is ringed with dramatically high sea walls! A really interesting place for a family exploration before or after the museum!
