Fleur de Lis Museum

Arts, Culture and Entertainment

Housed partly in a 15th century former public house, you will not only see the past but feel involved as the story unfolds of Faversham over the centuries.

You will be entranced by the Victorian schoolroom and kitchen, moved by the WW1 & WW2 displays, the costumes and shop fronts delight and there is an amazing selection of sports equipment and information.

Find out about the operation which was at the centre of the nation's explosives industry for 400 years and provided the powder which was used at the battles of Trafalgar and Waterloo. See a Strowger telephone exchange in operation. Follow the history of the creek side industry of brickmaking, while the ancient tools and agricultural equipment in the Big Shed contrast with the richness of the Elizabethan room.

Children will love the battered 16th century chest that once housed the treasures of Henry Hatch, a merchant adventurer turned town benefactor. 

If you prefer to have a guide on your visit, one of our knowledgeable volunteers will be happy to show you around, there is no charge for this service. 

There is also an everchanging Exhibition Gallery showcasing different items from the extensive Museum archives. There are trails and craft activities for children and museum admission is FREE.
