A quintessentially-English town, Sandwich has a fascinating history. The small town was once an important trade hub and part of the Cinque Ports network on the coast. The medieval buildings and old pubs in town hark back to this era.
Sandwich's most notable role in history is perhaps its ties to the popular food, the humble sandwich. John Montagu, the 4th Earl of Sandwich, allegedly invented the sandwich in the 18th century, putting together two pieces of bread and meat.
