“Sandwich is a beautiful medieval town just twenty minutes away. Seeped in history and quaint cobbles you can explore the Roman ruins at Richborough where the Romans landed in AD43. Wander through the narrow medieval streets appraising the Flemmish artechiture in Elizabethan England. Appreciate the view from the historic church towers and explore the Whitemill Heritage centre (free admission). Afterwards, visit the Monks Wall nature reserve to bond with nature and view the wide range of waterfowl this area attracts.”
