Mother Nature doesn't always pay attention to the tide times and tidal height predictions - meaning sometimes the Strood is passable at high tide when the tide table says it shouldn't be and vice versa. StroodCam lets you see when that happens.

When can you cross?

As a rough guide, allow about 1 hour either side of high tide time when the tide height is above 4.7m. Allow an extra 30 mins if it is over 5.5m.

If you see cars stopped you're best to stop and queue too!
