Grade II listed, Rose Street Cottage of Curiosities is one of the last 3 remaining homes built for Sheerness Dockyard workers in the 18th and 19th Centuries. One-time home to the Kicks shipwright family, the Cottage has been a furniture shop and Curd’s Wet and Dry Fish ’n’ Chip shop. It contains objects brought by locals over many years to evoke the Island’s quirky stories.
