About Queenborough

The harbour has always enjoyed a reputation as a safe haven and today is very popular with visitors and busy with yachts and other craft.

Queenborough prospered for much of its early life, but its role as a port was later undermined by the growth of Rochester and Chatham and, ironically, Sheerness (as a naval port).

The harbour and creek at Queenborough on the Isle of Sheppey has mooring facilities for a range of boats, whether staying one night or a few months. Ownership was transferred in April 2012 when Swale Borough Council sold the moorings to Queenborough Harbour Ltd, a not-for-profit organisation operating as Queenborough Harbour Trust.

A range of all-tide and tidal moorings are available for casual, seasonal and all year round hire, catering for both yachts and cruisers, moorings details are available on request.

Visitors to Queenborough can now make use of an All Tide Landing, owned by Queenborough Yacht Club and situated at Crundell's Wharf where it can be used by mooring holders and visiting yachtsmen for a small fee.

There are a limited number of tidal berths, buoys and visitor berths within the creek area that can be rented by prior reservation with the Harbour Office (subject to availability).

A fascinating history of Queenborough Port is available here.
