St Peter & St Paul Church in Charing is situated next to the remains of the Archbishop's Palace, just off the High Street. The church's west tower was built in the 14th century, although most of the rest of the building was reconstructed following a catastrophic fire in the 16th century. It is said to contain the stone on which John the Baptist was beheaded.

The Archbishop's Palace in Charing is an important heritage site and was first mentioned in the Domesday Book as land held by the Archbishop of Canterbury. This was one of a number of medieval palaces serving archbishops when they travelled between Canterbury and London.

Registers indicate that a palace was in regular use in Charing from the time of Archbishop Peckham (1279 to 1292). Later, both Henry VII and Henry VIII stayed at the Palace, the latter on his way to the Field of the Cloth of Gold. The property was seized by the Crown after the Dissolution in 1545 and was subsequently leased to, and later owned by, local farming gentry, notably the Honywoods and the Whelers. The present owner’s acquired the complex in the 1950s. The buildings are listed by English Heritage as Grade I and are a Scheduled Ancient Monument.
