The Sheppey Tourism Alliance was formed in 2009 by a small group of local people who believe with great passion that the glory dates of the 1950s when the Isle of Sheppey had a thriving tourism industry can in some way be revived as we head into the second decade of the new millenium

Where there’s a will there’s a way, so the Alliance is working hard to form a tourism offer for the thousands of visitors who flock to the Isle of Sheppey each year. The Alliance will not only be seeking to entice tourists and holiday-makers to the Island throughout the year, but also help raise the profile both nationally and internationally of the many attractions, holiday parks, accommodation providers and natural beauty to be found just off the Kent coast and within an hour’s drive or by train from London and Dover.
