Sandwich is a charming, historic town situated on the River Stour in Kent, between Margate and Dover in the White Cliffs Country. Historically one of the Cinque Ports, Sandwich boasts many original Medieval buildings, a historic quayside and a thriving town centre, making it an extremely popular place to both live and visit. The town was historically the seat of an earldom, whose best-known member, John Montagu 4th Earl of Sandwich, ‘invented’ and lent his name to the sandwich – the breaded snack we know and love today.
Strand Street is believed to be the longest unbroken stretch of ancient timber framed buildings in England, including Tudor inns and cottages, the Elizabethan Guildhall, the 14th-century Fisher Gate and the Sandwich Weavers Building, so residents of Sandwich are truly living in historic surroundings.
Described as relaxed, rustic and romantic, Sandwich offers a good range of shops, restaurants and a fine selection of state, private and grammar schools, including the renowned Sir Roger Manwood’s. Medieval pubs are now neighbouring with popular independent eateries, shops and businesses.
