Visitor Information Centre
Faversham is one of Kent's most delightful and historic market towns combining all the advantages of being just off the beaten track with easy access to first-class national and international transport links. For new and returning visitors, and even residents, the Society’s volunteers have access to a wide range of information supported by local knowledge covering Faversham and the outlying areas of Sittingbourne, Sheerness, the Isle of Sheppey, and the surrounding parts of Swale.
Part of the Fleur de Lis Heritage Centre, the distinctive timbered front of 10-11 Preston Street reveals that the property was built towards the end of the reign of Elizabeth I - in about 1600. Built as a house rather than a shop, this historic building now houses Faversham’s Visitor Information Centre and should be your first stop on your visit to Faversham. Opening hours are Monday – Saturday, 10-4; Sunday 10-1.
With the VIC staff’s excellent knowledge of the area and the wealth of maps, books, postcards and locally made gifts every visit to Faversham should start here!
