Sandwich is a charming town just 15 kilometres from Broadstairs. We often go here as part of a Friday afternoon visit, or you can easily reach it independently by train. It’s a small town but has some really interesting little shops and cafes, and it’s very pleasant to walk around the narrow streets with quirky buildings dating back as far as the 14th century.
You may be interested to know that the town got its name before the popular snack food! The creation of the sandwich is attributed to John Montagu, fourth Earl of Sandwich (1718-1792), a British statesman and dedicated sandwich gambler, who is said to be the inventor of this convenient type of food so that he would not have to leave his gaming table to take supper. The bread around the meat probably meant that he wouldn’t get greasy fingerprints on his playing cards!
There is a famous road sign near the town, pointing the way to both Sandwich and to Ham – the name of a local village!
Brighton is a fantastic destination for a day out, with its vibrant cultural mix and its varied arts and music scene. Here you will find modern shopping centres alongside unusual boutiques and small specialist shops in the old, historic lanes of the old town (known as ‘The Lanes’).
Something you really should see when you visit Brighton is the wonderful pier which is the one of the best examples remaining in the UK. With galleries, cafes and entertainment, you can spend a wonderful time here while admiring the views of the city behind you.
You must also visit the amazing Royal Pavilion ,which was built over 200 years ago as a seaside pleasure palace for King George IV, and which mixes the visual styles of India and China in a British royal building. You may love it or hate it, but you certainly won’t forget it!
Broadstairs Dickens Festival takes place every June, and lasts for about a week. Don’t be surprised if you bump into a ‘Victorian’ while you’re having your coffee or buying a sandwich! The streets are full of people in Victorian costume, many representing characters from the novels of Charles Dickens.
Charles Dickens visited Broadstairs in Kent regularly from 1837 until 1859, and the town has always had a strong connection with the famous writer.
In 1937, to commemorate the centenary of the author’s first visit, Gladys Waterer, the then resident of Dickens House, conceived the idea of putting on a production of David Copperfield and of having people about the town in Victorian dress to publicise it.
During the Festival, you can take tea with Victorians, listen to historical talks or Victorian entertainment, including dramatizations of Dicken’s works. It’s all great fun and very special!
Hever Castle is in our home county of Kent, about 80 miles/130 km from Broadstairs, so easy for a day out. The castle dates back 700 years in parts,and was the childhood home of Anne Boleyn, the second wife of Henry VIII (He had six in total!). It has 125 acres of beautiful gardens, two mazes and a boating lake, as well as shops and restaurants.
Here is a video of one of our recent day trips there.
