Help connect Sandwich
Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.
Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.
Give a hike and help get a for every one of Sandwich’s Slow Ways.

The route to Sandwich is very easy to follow as there is a sign at the start and concrete markers across the golf course. Will definitely walk again....
At the edge of Deal, the path becomes a concrete promenade along the sea wall past attractive buildings as far as the pier, where the route nips into the town centre to finish. There were some kissing gates to negotiate, but the route was pretty flat all the way....
Beautiful, straightforward walk along the coast, and both Deal and Sandwich have shops and restaurants that are great start/end points....

For almost its entire length, the route follows the Saxon Shore Way, which is well signposted and waymarked. Access issues: There are stiles and kissing gates where the footpath crosses the Royal St George's Golf Club; and access to the promenade at Sandown, to the north of Deal is down a short flight of steps....
The route follows the England Coast Path (ECP) throughout, but the published Slow Ways route does not follow the official diversion from Stonar Cut, which continues along the Ramsgate Road and avoids Richborough Port and truck park....
An alternative, less busy, but longer route would be: Canterbury/Patrixbourne/Adisham/footpaths between Wingham and Goodnestone/Summerfield Farm (below Barnsole)/then Black Pond Farm and follow the Cansan1 way....
Rather than head straight for the coastline, it's nice to go across the flat drained fields for a bit first, and cut across a bit later....
