Whitstable is a charming seaside resort with a bustling harbour and an excellent beach. When the tide comes in over the mud flats the sea is even warm enough to take a dip in just a bathing costume. The town is family-friendly but fashionable and the high street has been rejuvenated. There are plenty of sweet, little beach huts to relax in after a long hot day on the beach. Visit one of the town’s many fish markets and sample some of the best local fish in the area.
Discover Whitstable Castle and wander around the town’s grand Manor House and the beautiful gardens. The castle also hosts many workshops and classes that are open to the public all year round.
As summer comes to an end and autumn sets in, the harbour comes alive with a weekly market which doesn’t just sell great fish but also the artwork of local artists. And with such beautiful inspiration surrounding the area, the artwork is truly wonderful.
The area is also perfect for keen cyclists with a network of tracks winding through Kent. Follow the popular Crab and Winkle Way, a six-mile ride to Canterbury through the Kentish countryside.
Whitstable is an easy town to navigate with everything within walking distance; it’s perfect for families and for anyone looking for a relaxing break away from every-day life.
