History & Heritage
- Sandwich is one of the best preserved medieval towns in the UK. Within the old town walls many period houses with characteristic "Kent peg" roofs, are laid out in a way which has changed little since the Doomsday book in 1086.
- The fabulous Cathedral City of Canterbury has a whole host of history and heritage to discover including two castles, six museums, St Augustine's Abbey and the Cathedral itself
