Exlporing the Thames...down to Southend, any tips?

So with the new speed limits in place (and implicitly threfore the PLA making it very clear RIBs are no longer welcome) we've moved the boat out to Gallions Reach! Our plan is to explore the river, away from London and further out to the coast. Does anyone have any suggestions in terms of places of interest, overnight stays, restaurants/pubs that can be accessed easily by river (also of course if you have any tips on where to find petrol nearby)?

Here's one suggestion

Then cruising to Chatham Marina on the Medaway, overnight accommodation & petrol.

Dont forget to look at the wreck of the Montgomery at Thames / Medway juncion.
