Faversham's medieval market place is the oldest in Kent, and markets still run there three times a week. Surrounded by cafes, pubs, and independent shops it's the beating heart of the town and well worth a visit. You're never very far from the past here - make a beeline for Abbey Street, considered one of Britain's finest medieval sites. Other attractions include tours of the Shepherd Neame brewery and the Chart Gunpowder Mills, a restored and working gunpowder mill that chronicles the Faversham's former key industry. The town's station opened in 1858 and serves London commuters, with two trains travelling to Victoria and St Pancras every hour. Since 2009 the station also links to Ebbsfleet International and Stratford International. The present station was built in 1898, and a Grade I-listed former goods shed, built as part of the original rail line, can be seen at the junction to the east of the site.
