13 things to do in Sandwich

Sandwich might appear to be the ancestral home of everyone’s favourite lunch, but it’s unclear how much credit the town can really take for the savoury snack. The fourth Earl of Sandwich, who popularised shoving food between two slices of bread, didn’t have much to do with the place itself. Lucky then, that there’s much more to this ancient and achingly pretty town on the Kent coast than just carbs. Crust us. RECOMMENDED: Explore nearby Deal, Ramsgate or Margate too
