Step back in time and explore one of the original Cinque Ports which can lay claim to being one of the most historic towns in the country.
Earlier this year (2015) an original Magna Carta (issued by Edward 1 in 1300) and an original Charter of the Forest (issued in 1271) were discovered at Kent's archive centre. Plans are in place to return both documents to Sandwich.
Retrace some of history's more famous visitor steps - King Charles ll drank outside The Bell Hotel and Queen Elizabeth l visited in 1573. Wander through the unspoilt, medieval streets, where there are more half timbered houses than any other street in England.
The historic town trail follows a quiet circular walk, much of it running alongside the River Stour. There are a number of historical pubs along the walk to enjoy a drink or a sandwich! The 4th Earl of Sandwich is reputed to have asked for meat to be served between 2 slices of bread to avoid interrupting his gambling!
Stay in and around Sandwich. From 16th century bed and breakfasts and self catering cottages with historical connections, to The Bell Hotel on The Quay - all offer something special and unique.
Whether this is your first visit to Sandwich, or you’ve discovered Royal St George's Golf Club and Prince's Golf Club, or the amazing cultural and historical heritage before, there’s always lots more to explore!
