Faversham is a town in Kent. It is one of the oldest towns in the county, and predates the Roman Invasion of Britain. This may explain why the A2, although near, has never actually passed through the town. Brenley Corner interchange sits just to the east of the town, connecting it with the M2 and the A299 Thanet Way. The other main road is the A251 to Ashford.

The B2040 and B2041 have provided the main routes though the town itself, though they have changed since classification, with the former doing a dogleg around the Shepherd Neame Brewery, and the latter diverting one street east to run on Newton Street instead of Preston Street. Both were done in order to keep all motor traffic from passing through the market square in the town centre. The B2040 has also been rerouted down Love Lane to avoid using Graveney Road as a rat-run for the A299.

Due to the presence of the brewery, HGV traffic is signposted to avoid the town centre and sent along Love Lane and Whitstable Road, or more commonly along the B2045 Western Link to the main delivery depot.
