Sandwich was once a thriving and busy port but is now about two miles from the coastline. The Butts, Ropewalk, Millwall and The Bulwarks mark the original path of the Town Wall. Interpretation boards provide visitors with a wealth of information about the historic town. The surfaced pathways run along the top of the old wall and in some places the land drops away either side. The walk provides interesting town vistas along the way, as well as river and countryside views. The walk crosses some roads leading in and out of the town, and footpaths lead away from the circular walk into the countryside or back into the town centre where visitors can enjoy the interesting architecture, unusual shops and tempting refreshments. The White Cliffs Country Trail and the Stour Valley Walk pass through Sandwich towards the coast.
