The town is brimming with culture and history, having a wide choice of restaurants and pubs offering anything from
fine dining to fish and chips. Throughout the year Faversham is host to many interesting events like The Swale Barge Race, The Classic Car Rally, open air theatre and the world famous
Hop Festival plus many more. Faversham is one of Britain's finest heritage
towns with nearly 500 listed buildings dating from as early as the 13th century. Faversham also has the open garden scheme in June.
The town contains the oldest gunpowder mills in the world, the oldest brewery in Britain and the largest collection of
fruit tree varieties, housed at the Brogdale centre. We also have the superb, independently run Royal Cinema. On Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays there is a street market
which is the oldest in Kent, going back over 900 years. If you would like to
