Welcome to Historic Swale

Historic Swale is an umbrella organisation set up to showcase the diverse and fascinating heritage of the Swale area.

Swale is an area of North Kent with a deceptively rich history. The towns of Sheerness, Sittingbourne and Faversham are only the beginning!

If you are a visitor please explore this site to find our museums, historic buildings and heritage attractions.

If you are local and looking to get involved, then there will be something for you here too!
