Topic

In June 1948, the Empire Windrush arrived at Tilbury Docks, Essex carrying hundreds of people from the Caribbean. Many aboard had been to Britain before and some had fought in World War Two.

Click here to find out more about the history of the people on board and what it was like for them.

Citizens had British citizenship and British passports because many islands within the Caribbean were part of the British Empire.

Look at this activity about the journey of The Windrush and answer the questions. There is a blank map here you could use. You can use Google Maps as your atlas if needed. 

Can you also complete the challenge to find out other key facts?
