Sheerness is the largest town on the Isle of Sheppey, located in Kent, England. It sits at the mouth of the River Medway which, since the 16th century, has made the area strategically vital.
For hundreds of years, defences at Sheerness protected Chatham Dockyard, situated further down the river. Now, it’s simply a great place for an Afternoon Tea in Sheerness.

The history of Sheerness begins with King Henry VIII. Under his orders, the first structure appeared in what is today this famous seaside town. During this period, Sheerness was merely a fort.
By 1665, plans were underway to build a Sheerness Dockyard for warships. By the Victorian era, a pier and promenade saw it become a popular tourist attraction.
Nowadays, walking alongside the beachfront is one of the most popular activities among visitors. There is also the chance to glimpse SS Richard Montgomery, a US cargo ship that sank during World War Two. Alternatively, there is, of course, the option of visiting one of many Afternoon Tea Sheerness venues. Why not enjoy a cuppa with a scone or two on your next visit?
