Historic Faversham

Faversham, in the heart of beautiful rural Kent, is known as as the oldest market town in county and is both picturesque and packed with history – it is also home to Britain’s oldest Brewer, Shepherd Neame.

Located on the most inland point of a winding creek, Faversham’s tradition of shipbuilding goes back several hundred years and has been a contributor to markets throughout the world.  Between the years 1916 and 1969 Faversham built and launched over 1200 ships!

Getting Here

Faversham is within easy reach of London (less than 45 miles away or an hour by train), 7 miles from Canterbury and is just a few minutes from the M2 whilst Dover is only 25 miles away

Walking & Rambling

Faversham is the start or finish point to some of the best countryside and costal walking in the county. Standard Quay makes a great destination for day walks and offers an excellent base for longer walks such as the Saxon Shore Way.

There are also many circular walks such as ‘The Two Creeks’ and ‘Earth, Wind and Water’ – each of around 5 miles (using the shortcut!) that lead you along the Quayside and beyond.
