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.
