    The Sittingbourne Heritage Museum has only sprung up in the past couple of years but, as I found out on a recent visit, is well worth checking out.
    Entrance is free and there are various displays spread over two floors including lifelike modles of what life was like in 1940's Sittingbourne.

    If you fancy it why not visit our 'Dolphin Sailing barge museum' to find out a little about the history of the town.
    At the heart of Sittingbourne's long shop-lined, attractively paved high street is a jolly bronze bargeman. That's because Sittingbourne, and the older adjacent Milton Regis, were barge making towns. So visit the Dolphin Yard Sailing Barge Museum to get the flavour of this past.

    Swale men also made paper and bricks in these parts - and still do on a reduced scale. Milton Creek and the Swale provided both transport and power. Periwinkle Mill - for which there is long term restoration and museum plans - is just one example of the old water power.

    The GBP1.50 entrance fee for the barge museum is very reasonably priced.

    The Sittingbourne & Kemsley light Railway
    Take a ride on Sittingbourne and Kemsley Light Railway which gives you another perspective on the paper making the town is famous for because the line runs from one mill to the other.

    Lovely traditional English countryside pub in small little village near Sittingbourne.
    Probelam: they had already stopped serving food at 13:40 on a Sunday!!!! That is the traditional day for a 'Sunday Roast' but they are obviously not bothered about serving customers!

    Favorite Dish: Nothing since they cannot be bothered to actually serve the food they list on their menu.

    The Red lion Public House - great Sunday roasts!
    Xian Chinese Restaurant - top notch Chinese cuisine
    The restaurant area is separated from the bar to help create a more personal atmosphere.

    Favorite Dish: Try the Jamacian beef strips at the Red Lion Public House - hot! hot! hot!

    One Nightclub - Fat Sams(opened April 2002)We used to have another one called 'Legends' which closed the end of last year. There is talk of it opening again soon under new management.
    I haven't visited since Fat Sams (formally JJ's) opened several months ago. From what I've hear its an improvement on the old but that still doesn't make me want to go.

    Dress Code: Fat Sams - Smart/casual - no trainers.

    Don't miss Sittingbourne's rural backdrop. Nearby are beautiful Kentish villages such as Tunstall, Upchurch and Rodmersham. Thatched roofs, centuries-old churches and atmospheric pubs are surrounded by orchards and peacefully grazing sheep.

    Favorite thing: In Sittingbourne you MUST visit the Red Lion Public house situated on Sittingbourne High Street. A few years back it was voted the best town pub in Kent. Absoloutly great food at reasonable prices, friendly bar staff and a great feel to the place. This pub is over 700 years old!!

    Fondest memory: My friends and family who still live in the area and the memories of my childhood.
