Sandwich is one of the ancient Cinque Ports, which provided ships and men for the British navy in the Middle Ages. Among its many attractions are narrow streets with half-timbered houses, the river and quayside, historic gardens and an interesting variety of shops, restaurants, cafes and pubs. The nearby public library offers free wi-fi access. All these amenities are right on the Primrose Cottage doorstep. The mainline railway station is 8 minutes’ walk.
Boat trips may be taken from the quay: either upstream to Richborough Roman Fort or downstream to spot seals in the bay. Or you can stroll the Old Town Walls Walk to see the former moat and ramparts.
Unspoiled Sandwich Bay is a must. It is a few minutes drive or, alternatively, a picturesque 40-minute walk across the famous Royal St Georges golf course. Nature lovers may wish to visit the bird observatory, which welcomes guests.
Ideally situated for a relaxing break, Sandwich is within a 12-mile radius of several castles, the historic cathedral city of Canterbury, the white cliffs of Dover, Ramsgate Royal Harbour, the North Downs area of outstanding natural beauty, numerous beaches and the seaside towns of Deal, Broadstairs and Margate.
For a longer day out, London is accessible by regular train services or why not hop across the Channel to France or Belgium?
