The Fleur de Lis Heritage Centre is the headquarters of The Faversham Society and can be found in three adjoining properties in 10-13 Preston Street.
The individual buildings were acquired separately from 1971 onwards, with the Heritage Centre itself opening in No.13 Preston Street in 1977 after considerable fundraising by the Society. The buildings now house the town’s Visitor Information Centre and gift shop, a Museum and Gallery, and a Kentish Heritage Bookshop.
All three properties have an entrance on Preston Street – the VIC, Museum and Gallery – and all three have distinctively different, but important, architecture and history.
Visitors are welcome to browse in the Museum Reception and Shop where they can find out more about the history of the Heritage Centre buildings. The Society has also produced an excellent publication on the subject.
The Fleur de Lis Heritage Centre is open 10am to 4pm, Monday to Saturday, and 10am to 1pm Sunday.
Admission is £5 for adults, £3.50 for 60+ years, and £1.50 for children and students whilst Society members get in free.
