Customs House sits within the historic Standard Quay, nestled on the banks of Faversham Creek. Standard Quay welcomes pleasure vessels; and chandlery, boat-building and repair facilities continue to flourish. It also now boasts a wonderful array of bustling shops and stores. Antiques, bric-a-brac, old English tools, butchers and fishmongers all make up a diverse shopping experience and the Secret Garden Tea Room with its homemade cakes is not to be missed!
Faversham is a treat for lovers of historic buildings. Some 500 in the town are listed by English Heritage, most in its very large conservation area. In streets such as Abbey Street, Court Street, Tanners Street and West Street you’ll have no difficulty in conjuring up images of how the town looked 400 years ago. Many of the timber-framed buildings there then are still here now, and in good shape. As an actor, Shakespeare visited the town and if he were alive today he’d feel quite at home! Faversham has cared for its heritage like few other towns.
