Travelling around Sheerness
Located at the mouth of the River Medway, the Kentish island of Sheerness is a location about as remote and unspoilt as you can hope to find within half an hour of Kings Cross. With a bustling town centre, beaches everywhere you look and a fascinating history, this coastal town is the perfect place to come if you want to leave the hustle and bustle of larger towns and cities behind.
With coastal walks, nature reserves and beaches, Sheerness is the perfect place to spend a day if you’re a lover of the great outdoors. Bring a picnic, your walking boots and some binoculars and get ready to explore.
Although the island feels off the beaten track, it is actually very well-connected with regular trains to Kings Cross St Pancras, Canterbury and Rochester. Arriva buses operate regular services in and around Sheerness from Maidstone, Rushenden, Leysdown and beyond.
