Don’t miss Faversham Open Gardens Day and Garden Market on Sunday 29th June, 10am-5pm!

Explore 30+ Private and Community Gardens, Plant Sales, Teas, Children’s Activities.

Discover the gardens that lie behind the historic homes of Faversham. A variety of gardens will be opening, including sculpture, wildlife, waterside, walled, formal, meadow and courtyard gardens as well as many others. There will also be a range of community, charity and allotment gardens to explore. There’ll be plant sales, flower arranging demonstrations, garden charities and other garden-related stalls in a special Garden Market in Faversham’s handsome central market place.

Faversham is just over an hour by train from London’s St Pancras and Victoria Stations, and is conveniently situated just off Junction 6 of the M2. It has over 500 listed buildings, many dating back to medieval, Elizabethan and Georgian times. Their gardens range from tiny courtyards to surprisingly large ‘secret’ walled gardens. All are within walking distance of the town’s attractive central Conservation Area. Faversham has often been used as a film and TV location, most recently in ‘Great Expectations’ and ‘Southcliffe’, so it’s a perfect choice for a fascinating and fun Sunday walk.

Admission by brochure £6 per head or 2 for £10. Available from The Fleur de Lis Heritage Centre, 13 Preston Street, Faversham ME13 8NS
