Welcome to Belmont in Faversham, Kent. The focus of Belmont is the magnificent neo-classical house, but we also have beautiful gardens and the finest private collection of clocks in Britain to explore!
The house was built in 1769 by Edward Wilks, store-keeper at the nearby Faversham Powder Mill. Extensive views and its elevated position gave Belmont its name.
The present layout of the grounds dates from the 1790s, though the planting has been altered over the past two centuries. The gardens consist of a walled garden, pinetum, wooded areas, formal lawns and a large kitchen garden.
