The Medieval town of Sandwich is well known as one of the first historical Cinque Ports, which was in Norman times responsible for supplying the King with men and ships. Nowadays, landscape shifts render Sandwich two miles inland, but the legacy of the Cinque Ports has left Sandwich with some impressive landmarks and an unsinkable heritage. The streets are lined with Tudor black and white timber buildings, which lend Sandwich a character only found in this historical town. The Guildhall and Town Wall, The Butts, the Ropewalk, Millwall, the Bulwarks, Fishergate, the Barbican and Toll Bridge over the River Stour are all redolent of its historical wealth and importance. Perfect for exploring, whatever the weather.
