For the tourist visitor to Sandwich its well worth spending half an hour here to look round this small museum which gives a great timeline prospective of Sandwich from Roman times to the present day. Come on who remembers from their English school history lessons that Sandwich used to be on the coast seven hundred years ago and Thanet was really an island?
Some good artefacts and interesting descriptions and a very enthusiastic volunteer guide who was very helpful and made sure we didn’t miss the historic courtroom downstairs that was open for our visit.

Visited with my two grandsons as part of the Wheels of Time scheme. The main exhibit is in one room but well laid out and interesting. One can normally visit the old court room but this was closed for a wedding ceremony.. The museum is generally disabled friendly, but the car park and toilets behind the Guildhall leave much to be desired, as does the cobbled front courtyard. There are a number of cafes and restaurants in the local area. The volunteers staff are very friendly and helpful and knowledgable.
