Hoo St Werburgh Church dates back to at least the time of King Edward the Confessor. The building of the present church was started in the 12th Century, with memorial windows added in the 19th Century, referencing historic figures including St Werburgh, the daughter of Wulfere, King of Mercia and grand-daughter of Ercombert, King of Kent whose wife Sexburga was Abbess of Minster in Sheppey.

Free parking at top of Church Street and on Vicarage Lane, within walking distance.
