From links to Lord Nelson and Charles Dickens to being the site of the world’s first aircraft factory, Sheppey’s rich and colourful history is all explained on a visit to the island organised by The Criterion Theatre & Blue Town Heritage Centre. In addition to its main exhibition and gallery space the Heritage Centre has a tea room, a music hall, archive and interactive, immersive exhibition spaces including a replica of HMS Victory’s Quarter Deck for guests to explore.
Groups can while away the hours enjoying a tour, provided by an expert guide, of centuries of naval, aviation, literary, showbiz and local history, before enjoying a fish and chip lunch or afternoon tea and a show, or educational talk in the historic Music Hall, provided bespoke to suit the group’s needs.
