History Of Sandwich Guildhall

The Guildhall in the town square of Sandwich was built in 1579. Guildhall was constructed during the reign of Queen Elizabeth 1st.

The building has enlarged since the times of the Tudors. However, the structure may have changed, but its ghostly residents have remained.

This remarkable building holds antique panelling and paintings, particularly within the council chamber. This is a Grade II* listed building.

Sandwich is now about two miles from the sea, but the River Stour used to be large enough for extensive trading and warships to sail to and from the quay. This large harbour was called Sandwich Haven.

A tight squeeze for The Sandwich Haven

It was also large enough for invading ships, and the town was invaded many times. For example, in 1457, the town was attacked by 4,000 Frenchmen (mainly from Honfleur) under Marshal Pierre de Breze or, as English accounts call him, Peter Brassey. The Mayor of Sandwich, John Drury, was killed and many citizens. In memory of this event, the Mayor of Sandwich still wears a black robe.

All is forgiven today, however, and the town of Honfleur is now a twin town of Sandwich.

Sandwich was and still is a principle Cinque port. The Cinque Ports were a confederation of five harbours, Sandwich, Romney, Dover, Hythe, and Hastings. They supplied the Crown with ships and men for over 300 years. In return, they received freedom from tolls and customs duties, freedom to trade and hold their judicial courts, and many other privileges.

Today, these towns are still known as the Cinque Ports, but the coastline has changed considerably over the centuries, and only Dover retains its major port status.

Sandwich still retains the tradition of collecting 'Ship Money' from its associate towns; the ceremony is held in the old Courtroom in the Guildhall every year.
