A comfy place to rest, a place to do business amongst some of the biggest and brightest companies, a place that's easy to reach and easy to relax in at the end of the day.
That is just the tip of the iceberg; with intriguing history, a slew of sports and recreation, some creative culture, invigorating outdoor experiences alongside a serious choice of emerging comforts and essentials and all just 45 minutes from London and other regional attractions.
Swallows leisure centre, Go Karting at Bayford Meadows, Greyhound Racing and Speedway at Central Park Stadium together with a variety of entertainment and hospitality venues in the town are improving the draw as a local destination.
Surrounding the town are attractive orchards and farmland, and beautiful villages potted with centuries-old churches. Milton Creek Country Park is also a fantastic green space from which to enjoy an oasis of wildlife, some of which are of national or international importance. Some of the surrounding countryside happens to be part of the North Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Sittingbourne and its nearby Milton Regis, both have a rich history in paper-making, brick-making and barge-building. Indeed - it is because of these industries and Milton Creek that Sittingbourne is where it is today! The Heritage Hub in the Forum Shopping Centre, Sittingbourne Heritage Museum and the Court Hall Museum are all worth a visit to bringing the story of the town to life. Sittingbourne is the only UK town twinned with Ypres in Belgium and because of its links many of its locals call it a town to be proud of.
Filming: Sittingbourne locations have been featured on film and TV and include Sittingbourne Greyhound Stadium, where scenes from 'The Riddle (2007)' were shot and the police station used in the Channel 4 series 'Southcliffe' (2013) is located. The Kent Film Office regularly works with location managers to bring filming to the county.
