The Isle of Sheppey is a good tourist destination for a break in the UK. I first visited around this time last year, when I first met someone in person from the internet. I have made a few return visits within the year, and can now make a few observations. The dreaded bridge - In order to get to the island, there is a drawbridge. During summer there is heavy traffic, and the bridge goes up, to allow ships through. Worst case scenario, an extra hour to the journey, but expect to wait at least 10 mins during the summer, or on Saturdays. Sheerness market - Held every Saturday just outside the town centre. A good place to find a bargain, and many stalls. Leysdown Boot Fayre - A car boot sale, held every Sunday at Leysdown, between April - October. I went in August, and it is very busy, another place to find bargains. Top Banana night club - Well, I'm not really the clubbing kind of person, but those who are into it, should really like it. Get in before 11pm, for cheaper admission. Where to stay - There are a few caravan parks and camp sites, offering self catering facilities. Also plenty of B&B's offering affordable accommodation. How to get there - The train takes you just outside Sheerness town centre. Bus station is linked to train station. By road, take the A249 junction the M20, or M2, and head for sign for Sheerness Docks. Well signposted from the M25. More localised maps should be available on the internet.
