    Sandgate castle is an unusual place because of the alteration it has been through over the centuries. The castle was built in 1539 for Henry V111 for a pricley sum of ?5,584, the castle also has royal conections, Elizabeth 1st rested here on her way from Greewich to Dover 1573. Part of the castle was converted in to a martello tower in the years Napolionic war due to fear of invasion by the french. These days the castle has been partly restored to its former glory and is privately owned, sadly the castle is not open to the public but specially arranged tours are possible through the castle shop

    This is a memorial dedicated to Sir John Moore who was killed at Corunna in 1809. I won't bore you with the history of the man but he was largely responsible for the building of the Martello towers that reach far along our coastline, if you are interested you can read all about Sir John Moore, or the Martello towers in these links

    This is the start of Sandgate at the folkestone end of the high street, this is the area in which the Sandgate castle is located, although i havn't got round to taking any photos of the castle yet but be patient it won't be long, anyway if you want to walk through the village it takes you about 30 mins and you will pass lots and lots of antique shops there are some lovely things in these shops but very expensive, well worth a look though

    I was lucky to have visited the Sandgate Hotel before it starred on TV when celebrity chef Gordon Ramsey went to try and sort out the amateurs that had bought it.

    Soon afterwards, despite looking as though he had fixed it, the blinds were drawn and it went bust.

    Now under new ownership so may be worth giving it a try.

    It's a pub that does grub.

    Right in the centre of the High Street.

    Check out the website. Doesn't look like that any more. The old hag is still probably a regular!

    Favorite Dish: Pub grub, too much to mention and a decen tpint of local beer to wash it down.

    Sandgate esplanade runs for about 3 miles along the suoth east coast towards the town of Hythe, on one side of the road is the royal military canal and on the other is the sea with a pebble beach, this is a fav place for fishing, swimming, jogging and bike riding
