Historic Standard Quay is one of Faversham's hidden jewels. Sitting alongside the Creek at the far end of Abbey Street and in easy walking distance from the town centre, Standard Quay gives the visitor a truly unique experience. Offering, locals and visitors alike, creek side walking, shopping, eating and a chance to learn about, and see, some of Faversham's history. Made up of creek moorings, well preserved 17th and 18th century buildings, it is a must see while in town.
Located in the 17th century 'Monks Granary' is Aladdin's Loft Antiques and Collectables, The Coffee Shop and Garden Centre, Crumble Cats Gifts, Jesters Toys, Fuchsia Perfect Beauty Therapy, and Ashley's Bridal Boutique. Within the preserved historic storage barns are Inner Goddess Treatments, Meadowlark Collectables, Chulo Naturals Skin Care Products and Bin Ella Champagne & Wine Bar.
Standard Quay also is home for several classic ships and boats including barges such as Cambria and Greta as well as traditional fishing boats, classic tugs and overnight moorings of all sorts.
Standard Quay hosts regular events. On a bank holiday there is always something extra happening at the Quay.
Or simply come and sit by the Creek and let the history sink in!
