Sandwich is a historic town on the River Stour in Kent, known throughout the world for giving its name to the bread snack, courtesy of John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich. The word sandwich is now found in many languages. Sandwich is an ideal base to discover Kent, the Garden of England. It is surrounded by small picturesque villages, such as Eastry, Ash, Worth and Woodnesborough and within easy reach of Canterbury and Dover. This historic town was one of the original Cinque Ports and still has many medieval buildings, including several listed public houses, gates in the old town walls, churches, almshouses and the White Mill, which has a heritage centre. Sandwich Bay is home to nature reserves and world-class golf courses at Royal St George's and Prince's. The town is also home to educational and cultural events. There are many cafés, tea rooms, inns and restaurants and plenty of shops to explore.
