Fleur de Lis Heritage Centre

 

Headquarters of the Faversham Society, the Fleur de Lis Heritage Centre hosts a museum, gallery, the town's VIC, and a heritage bookshop, with a second-hand bookshop just round the corner.

 

The museum is much larger than it's modest entrance suggests and visitors should take at least an hour to look round.  The displays lead visitors through the history of Faversham from early archaeological evidence, through its medieval prosperity as a bustling trading centre, its Elizabethan growth, and subsequent industrial development - including important explosives manufacture, brewing, brickmaking and shipbuilding.

The Fleur de Lis Heritage Centre can be found at 12-13 Preston Street, Faversham and is open Monday – Saturday, 10-4; Sunday 10-1.  Admission is a very reasonable £5 for adults, £3.50 for 60+ yrs and £1.50 for children (5-16yrs) and full time students; entrance to the gallery and bookshop is free whilst Faversham Society members have free access to the whole site.
