Home - 24 hours in Faversham

Beata had a couple of days off so she came to my home town of Faversham in Kent (The market town of Kings).

As we were hungry we popped into Saddlers in the town center.

After a delicious meal we went further down West street to the Sun Inn.

Th Sun Inn has been around for hundreds of years.

We found a small secluded part of the garden and a had a glass of wine or two.

Afterwards we went back to my place.

After while we were hungry again so we had diner at an Italian restaurant called Posillipo by Faversham creek.

This is Faversham's third Guildhall. The first was on Guildhall Green in Tanners Street, more or less where the Gospel Mission Hall now stands. The town's early nucleus was in this area, but later its centre of gravity moved to Court Street.

In about 1547 the Corporation built a new Guildhall where the single-storey section of the Shelter Shop now is, on the east side, at Middle Row's north end. Sometimes known as the ‘White House’ (presumably because it was lime-washed white), this was where Queen Elizabeth I was entertained on her visit to the town in 1572.

Next morning we went downstairs for a Champagne breakfast in The Yard.
