Sandwich station is eight miles south of Ramsgate on the quaint Kent Coast Line. The station opened in 1846, but after falling into disrepair it underwent a £100,000 face-lift in 1985, and today the charming brown brick building offers a warm welcome to train passengers. Originally, the station was surrounded by a large goods yard, but today the area is residential, reflecting a shift from freight to passenger services. There are three services daily to London St Pancras, taking roughly 90 minutes. Sandwich's historic sights include the Guildhall, with its ancient courtroom; a museum charting the town's Roman roots; the White Mill Rural Heritage Centre, with its 1760 windmill, including original wooden machinery; and the Richborough Roman fort, a short bus journey from the station. The pretty Secret Gardens are also worth a look, and a boat ride up the River Stour will bring to Sandwich Bay, which has a bird-rich nature reserve and two excellent golf courses.
