Spend the day in Faversham and enjoy our lovely town. Whether it is our cafe culture, traditional shops, the Market on Tuesday, Friday and Saturday or one of our many attractions, there will be plenty to occupy your time.
You will be welcomed to an Aladdin’s Cave of treasures drawn from Faversham’s long and colourful past! From our new Reception space you can follow the town’s history from the earliest archaeological times, through its medieval and Elizabethan importance as a trading centre, its subsequent industrial growth, and its more recent change from a bustling hub of Victorian and 20th century work and social life to a high quality heritage tourism destination.
The Museum is located in the Fleur de Lis Heritage Centre at 12-13 Preston Street and is open Monday – Saturday, 10-4; Sunday 10-1. Admission is a very reasonable £5 for adults, £3.50 for 60+ yrs and £1.50 for children (5-16yrs) and full time students, whilst Society members get in free.
Situated in a beautiful walled, wild-life friendly, organically- managed garden we place an emphasis on the therapeutic benefits of horticultural activities. We grow a wide range of spray-free vegetables, fruit, plants and flowers which are for sale to visitors in return for donations. Over the past two years we have won 2 Gold Awards for Gardening for Wild-Life and also Certificates of Excellence from South and South East in Bloom.
