A recent study named Faversham as the best town to live in in Kent.
Faversham’s historic creek area and ancient pub scene make it a popular destination for those looking to move away from the city.
One of the 20,000 people that are lucky enough to call Faversham home is superstar musician Bob Geldof.
If it’s good enough for Bob you’d think it would be good enough for all locals…but no! Some people just can’t be pleased.

Bob has been a Man of Kent for more than 30 years and is arguably Faversham’s most famous resident.
Indeed, back in 1986 long-term resident Geldof was made a Freeman of the borough of Swale.
Geldof has called Faversham home since moving into the 12th Century Davington Priory in the 1980s.
Locals would have no doubt seen the 69-year-old walking around the town.
Bob is clearly happy in Faversham and it's easy to see why. It's close to the beach, close to Canterbury and has great links to London.
However, some people are just not buying it!
Like so many towns in Kent, Faversham has faced the wrath of the brutal reviews on the satirical website ILiveHere
The website sees residents unleash their pent up frustrations in the form of exaggerated, and quite frankly savage, reviews.
Reviewers have slammed the market town labelling it as a ‘dump’
The brutal review said: “Avoid this dump like the plague.”
“There’s absolutely nothing of interest here, but to come and stare at the inhabitants and their awful town.
“Investing money here would suicide on a grand scale.”
