The town's name came from the fact that there is a small stream or "bourne" running underground in part of the town. With evidence of settlement in the area before 2000 BC Sittingbourne is steeped in significant local Kentish and even national English history. Following the murder of Thomas O'Beckett Sittingbourne became the go between for pilgrims making the journey from London to Canterbury this even included royalty staying at the Red Lion PH on the high street.
