Sandgate Castle is an ancient artillery fort which was part of the coastal defense program by Henry VIII. Built in the mid-fifteenth century, today the castle is largely suffered by the sea. Though several attempts were made to restore the structure during the eighteenth century, nothing ever happened. As a result of the receding coastline, a southern part of the castle was damaged during the mid-nineteenth century. After this, it was handed over to private owners and the actual refurbishment began. Today, the castle is not open to the public and can only be looked at from the outside. It still looks picturesque standing tall along the coast.
