|Sandwich and Royal St George's|
|Author: clairesharpuk, Published: 28 Aug 2012||Walk rating : Rating:|
|A 4 mile circular walk from the pretty Kent town of Sandwich. The walk starts from the quayside in the town and heads out along the paths running alongside the River Stour and then through the championship golf course of Royal St George to reach the beach, before turning back in land to pass through farm land back to the town. |
The walk is almost entirely flat and there are no stiles, just a few kissing gates. The paths are a mixture of tarmac paths and grass/dirt paths across the golf course and fields and so some of the route can be muddy after wet weather. One of the fields is likely to be holding sheep so take care with dogs. There are public toilets in the car park at the start. Approximate time 1.5 to 2 hours.
The walk starts from the Quay pay and display car park in Sandwich. Approximate post code CT13 9EN.
|Start to Royal St George's|
Start point: 51.2754 lat, 1.3438 long
Walk to the far end of the Quay car park, away from the swing bridge and continue straight ahead alongside the wooden gates and ahead onto the tarmac path lined with sycamore trees. Follow the tarmac path with the river running on the left and you will come to a white metal footbridge across a reedbed on the left. Cross over the bridge and follow the narrow tarmac path as it bends to the right with the river still on the left.
|Royal St George's to Beach|
Start point: 51.2746 lat, 1.3649 long
The walk now takes you across the golf course so be sure to respect the golfers by keeping quiet, keeping a careful lookout for stray golf balls flying towards you and allowing golfers to play their shots before you cross any fairways.
|Beach to Prince's Golf Club|
Start point: 51.2774 lat, 1.3814 long
Turn left here and either follow the road, or use the dunes at the back of the beach – the choice is yours – heading for the red and white club house building further down the lane. Enjoy the views ahead to Pegwell Bay and over to the right to Ramsgate.
|Prince's Golf Club to Bridge|
Start point: 51.2823 lat, 1.3783 long
Continue ahead on the tarmac lane and as you approach the white club house ahead, fork left in front of it onto the stone track. Once you are behind the buildings, turn left again to continue on the stone track, with the fence boundary to the Royal St George’s course on the left and the open area of Prince’s course on the right.
|Bridge to End|
Start point: 51.2791 lat, 1.357 long
Continue on the narrow tarmac path as it swings first left and then right running alongside the river on the right. Follow the path winding ahead and you will come to a T-junction. Here turn right to join the path you followed on the outward stretch.

Lovely walk, fairly flat and no stiles which is a bonus with the dog. Public conveniences on the beach/dunes about half-way were very clean and pleasant to use. Worth noting that at the time of writing the quay-side parking is reduced and minimal while works are carried out...

I want to congratulate you on your web site/app performance, quick, reliable and easy to use. I have similar walking apps with OS Maps and ViewRanger but yours is best.
This app has totally changed my life, i absolutely love it. I did this walk yesterday, what a beautiful walk it is, i thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely do it again, in fact i met an older gentleman who was on his 100 and something time there!! My sister and daughter cant wait to come along. The noise mentioned about the motorway is negligible and for me did not detract from the overall walk at all, the view from the top was stunning!!
So far I have downloaded 5 walks and completed 3 of them, tomorrow will be No 4. I love your website The walk descriptions are the best I have used in the last six years of rambling since I retired. This is a website I would be more than happy to pay a subscription for, instead I'll donate a sum to my favourite charity. THANK YOU.
Have deleted Pokemon Go and downloaded @ifootpathuk which is much more 'me'
I love the illustrated descriptions of each walk section. Really helps to enjoy the walk and get to know something about what I'm seeing. So much better than apps that only provide GPS co-ordinates and no photos or description. Love it!
After trying out numerous other apps I came across this one: way ahead of any of the others in every way. Much more accurate and very easy to use with great features. Would highly recommend it as THE app to use for walking.
Just wonderful, with walks for everyone: the fit, the not-so-fit, short walks, long walks, through woods, up hills (and down).
I highly recommend it, as my mum and I use it to go for walks and finish by eating at a pub. Its detailed and sometimes humorous instructions lead us easily to our destination. Also, to top this, it has interesting facts about the area we're walking in
I don't review much but this app deserves it. Downloaded some really good walks and the combination of the good descriptions and the really useful map of the walk showing where you are make it a brilliant tool. Well done and keep up the good work.
Very enjoyable and well described route. Views over the river from the warren were stunning.
Fantastic walk and amazing views. Great directions though I followed the GPS map mainly
Great walk, instructions were very detailed, perfect!
This may be the best walk I've ever done. It was certainly the best directions.
Even on a cold windy day with it trying to snow this was still an excellent walk. We managed it with our 2 children of 5 yrs and one in a all terain pram (a defo no no with a normal pram). Will be doing this one again in the summer.
Used app while visiting (it was great!)--live in Texas. Thanks!
Your app and walks are a dream to use
Did this walk this morning with our three little girls and we all love it. Great day outdoor!
