Rose Street Cottage and its two neighbouring properties are the only remaining homes of a number that were built for Sheerness Dockyard workers in the 18th and 19th Centuries, often using timber 'Chips' from the docks. They are weatherboarded, roofed with Welsh slate and are Grade II listed. Changing exhibitions, displays and objects of interest. It changed from the Sheerness Heritage Centre in 2015 after coming under the umbrella of Sheppey Promenade charity, to celebrate the islands life through a festival of arts, history and culture. Also part of the Wheels of Time e-badge scheme for younger visitors.

Opening Hours
Re-opening after Lockdown by appointment only.


Unfortunately, the building has a set of steep, winding stairs which may make the first floor inaccessible for those with disabilities.
