Review of Whitstable by Jackie on August 20th, 2010
Hi My youngest son married a 'Whitstable' girl and now the rest of the family are moving from Essex. We have fallen in love with Whitstable. Saying that we usually spend more time there in the Summer, but as we are relocating can anyone give me any ideas of how the while away the long, dark winter months. Thanks Jackie

Review of Whitstable by Kim Hollingshead on June 29th, 2009
Whitstable is famous for its oysters and other shellfish, for its sailing and for its sunsets Judi and I lived here until quite recently and we loved the community atmosphere. It's a bustling, lively place to live and has its own excellent Theatre Company, Music Club, and a variety of Sports Clubs. Whitstable Harbour, a lovely little working harbour, covers 14 acres of which 1.5 is harbour basin, 2.5 foreshore and the remaining acres quays and storage areas. There are three quays South, East and West which can accommodate seven vessels between them. It has its own little market selling artwork, curios, antiques and gifts. It also has stalls and shops selling seafood and a great seafood restaurant. Whitstable is also the summer haunt of the Thames Sailing Barge, 'Greta', which offers trips out into the estuary.
