Part of the Fleur de Lis Heritage Centre, the distinctive timbered front of 10-11 Preston Street reveals that the property was built towards the end of the reign of Elizabeth I - in about 1600. Built as a house rather than a shop, this historic building now houses Faversham’s Visitor Information Centre. Due to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis the VIC will only open on Fridays & Saturdays from 10am to 4pm, and on Sundays from 10am to 1pm.
Faversham is one of Kent's most delightful and historic market towns combining all the advantages of being just off the beaten track with easy access to first-class national and international transport links. For new and returning visitors, and even residents, the Society’s volunteers have access to a wide range of information supported by local knowledge covering Faversham and the outlying areas of Sittingbourne, Sheerness, the Isle of Sheppey, and the surrounding parts of Swale.
Within the Visitor Information Centre you will also find a gift shop selling a large variety of affordable souvenirs, books, prints and postcards.
