In 1170, the infamous death of Thomas Becket, the Archbishop of Canterbury, put Sittingbourne on the map. During this period, the area became a convenient resting point for pilgrims on the road from London to Canterbury. By the 14th century, renowned writer Geoffrey Chaucer made mention of the town in The Canterbury Tales.
Since then, many Kings and Queens of England have stopped in Sittingbourne. This includes Henry V on his way back from the Battle of Agincourt. Centuries later, Henry VIII visited in 1522 and 1532.
Queen Victoria, although not the Monarch at the time, likewise travelled here in 1825. Today, several Afternoon Tea Sittingbourne venues are indeed fit for royalty!
