Sandwich & the Surrounding Area
Sandwich is one of the best preserved and most complete medieval towns in Britain. The layout of the town has changed little since the creation of the Domesday book of 1086. The narrow winding streets of the conservation area provide many examples of houses dating back to the reign of Elizabeth I.

In addition to its own unique charms Sandwich provides a base from which to explore sights such as the city of Canterbury and the White Cliffs of Dover. Close proximity to the port of Dover provides for convenient ferry trips to France. In addition day trips to Paris via the channel tunnel link or London provide excellent opportunities for sightseeing or business travel.
The area has plenty of entertainment for families with wildlife parks, beaches and castles to visit as well as plenty of charming country pubs and restaurants.
