Things to do in Queenborough, Kent


Queenborough on the Isle of Sheppey, with much to remind visitors of its long history as a seafaring town, is well worth exploring. In the High Street is the Guildhall on the site of an earlier courthouse captured by the Dutch in 1667.

The artist Hogarth stayed in the town during his famous peregrination through Kent.

The All-Tide Landing provides safe access at all states of the tide for visiting yachts and people using the waters.
