From being a Saxon stronghold first mentioned in AD664 to its role as a Cinque Port, Sandwich is richly woven with history and traditions.
Sandwich is one of the most complete medieval towns in England. It contains the highest number of listed buildings per head of population in the country and was the first town in Britain to have a preservation order placed on the entire town.
