Things to do in Sandgate, Kent

Awaiting photographs of Sandgate

Sandgate spans 2 ½kms of Kent coastline between Folkestone and Hythe. It fringes the English Channel and clusters beneath steep wooded slopes. Here you will find an area teeming with naval, military and social history and a village with a fascinating mix of architectural styles.

There's much to do and enjoy, whether strolling along the sea wall, exploring the network of byways and woodland paths or taking in the panoramic views across the Channel. Rowing, fishing, bathing and cycling are also popular.

Centre of the South East antiques trade, Sandgate is well placed to accommodate hungry visitors with pubs, cafes, fish and chip shops and gourmet restaurants. Sandgate's charm is much as Cobbett saw it on his Rural Ride Through Kent in 1823 - 'A beautiful little place upon the beach itself'.
