Organised by the Faversham Society, Open House 2017 is the annual opportunity to gain special access to properties of considerable historical and architectural interest. Community minded owners open their properties on the first 3 Saturdays in July, so we can view and enjoy these special places.

This year, the scheme will be in its 48th year and it was the first of its kind at the time, later being used as a template for the National Heritage Open Days Scheme, now in its 28th year. Our prestigious Scheme offers a unique insight into Faversham’s built environment and heritage that you shouldn’t miss.

37 properties including 6 new to the scheme, will be taking part on the 1st, 8th and 15th July. One of the highlights this year is the opportunity to view Faversham‘s Magna Carta, which is on display at 12 Market Place on the 8th and 15th July. Handbooks at £8.50 each will be on sale in the Visitors Information Centre, Preston Street, Faversham ME13 8NS from the 1st June, or can be ordered by phone on 01795 534542 or by post (£10.50 inc p&p). For groups of 2 or more people, admission to properties will be £8.50 for the 1st member of the group (to include 1 handbook) and then £5 for any additional member of the group (programme only, no handbook). Each handbook and programme allows entry to all properties on all 3 Saturdays
