Sine the 16th Century when Henry VIII's fleet lay at anchor in Faversham Creek, an Inn has stood on this site. Originally a simple wine tavern called "Then Shippe", over the centuries the enlarged "Ship Inn" became an important stagecoach stop between London and Dover. All kinds of coaches and carriages, bringing travellers, revenue and excise men, military officers, couriers, merchants and humble journeymen passed beneath this archway.
