About the location
Chilham 7 miles; Whitstable 9 miles; Canterbury 9 miles.
Faversham is a thriving market town in the heart of Kent. With many interesting places to see and things to do, this lovely town offers visitors the chance to explore, shop, cycle, walk, swim, fish, or dine out and also boasts the oldest brewery in Britain dating back to 1698. It was due to the brewery that "hop picking" became the family holiday for many families living in London, right up until the 1950s. During the summer, thousands of people would descend on the fields around Faversham, put up their tents and spend the days "hop picking", thus making this one of the best places to enjoy a pint or two! Faversham is proud of its history and the town is even named in the Domesday Book and with its cobbled streets and medieval houses, tiny quaint pubs and many listed buildings, this town enjoys remembering its fascinating history. For those looking to experience the outdoor life, Faversham has more than enough to keep you entertained, why not take a swim in one of the all-year-round swimming pools? In the summer, Faversham offers three outdoor pools with diving boards, a paddling pool and white water rapids, you can even pack a picnic and make a day of it, there is plenty of grass around the pools for picnics and for children to play on.
