Displays illustrate the history of the ancient town of Winchelsea since it was built by Edward I as a medieval "New Town" over 700 years ago. In addition, there are displays about Winchelsea's position as a head port of the Confederation of Cinque Ports. The exhibits include maps, models, pictures, seals, local pottery and items of daily life. Close to the museum is the beautiful parish church of St Thomas the Martyr founded by Edward I, circa 1289, ravaged by French raids in the 14th century and restored to its present glory during the 20th century. It is renowned for its stained glass windows and the medieval Alard tombs. Seasonal opening.
