Sandwich is a small charming British town in the south east of England. The city of about 4,500 inhabitants is 150 km from London and has a strong history from medieval England. During that era, among other things, Sandwich was an important port city but is actually now 3 kilometers from the coast.
Sandwich is located a bit from the coast but through its center runs the river River Stour which then empties into the sea at Sandwich and Pegwell Bay. For the best experience of the beautiful nature, wildlife and to see historical imprints, a tip is to book a boat trip with Sandwich River Bus.
The city can offer as many as 4 historically strong churches in St. Clement's, St. Mary's, St. Peter's & United Reformed, well worth a visit. If you want to continue to take part in the culture and history of the city, you should spend some time at the Guildhall Museum. There they go through different eras and in the building there is also an old courtroom.
If you want to get a little more active, there is the Sandwich Leisure Center, a modern gym that also contains halls for, for example, badminton, football and basketball.
A popular activity is also to visit the Sandwich Bowling Club, where you play a precision sport outdoors that dates back to the 13th century and is reminiscent of boules and bocce.
Despite the city's limited size, there are good and affordable places to visit. Namaste Sandwich is a central alternative that offers tasty Indian food in a pleasant restaurant environment and with staff who are known for providing a good service!
If you want to feel a little at home in your restaurant visit, The King’s Arms Restaurant is recommended, where, among other things, classic British dishes can be enjoyed in their charming garden. This is also an affordable family run hotel to stay in if you want to stay in Sandwich during your stay in England.
Sandwich is without a doubt characterized by golf and has 3 nice courses outside the center, all beautifully situated on the coast. Visit Royal St George's, Prince's Golf Club or Royal Cinque Golf Club. All the courses are truly world class!
