Faversham has a magnificent series of royal charters granted to the town by successive English monarchs.
The earliest surviving Faversham charter dates from the reign of Henry II in 1252, followed by eighteen more granted by 1685. Most of these were carefully kept.
For a town of its size, the charter collection of Faversham is one of the finest anywhere in England.
In the exhibition room you will see a selection of them, including an example of Magna Carta, one of the most celebrated documents in English history. Also on display are other documents, maps and artefacts that have been preserved here in the town for many centuries.
