A circular walk around historic Sandwich
Sandwich is one of England’s most picturesque towns. The narrow winding streets are lined with colourful timber-framed buildings and surrounded by world-class golf courses.
Yet behind these charming sights the town has survived sieges, earthquakes, pandemics and much more.
In the medieval period Sandwich was a port that welcomed pilgrims, launched armies of soldiers and hosted generations of royalty. By the sixteenth century however Sandwich was left behind, almost frozen in time.
This walk reveals how that process happened and how Sandwich has adapted since. Follow the town’s changing fortunes over the centuries and see how different elements still shape the landscape.
