Whitstable Tips

Just 7 miles (10km) from the historic cathedral city of Canterbury, lies the delightful harbour town of Whitstable. Known as the 'Pearl of Kent', Whitstable is famous for its oysters which can be sampled at several gourmet restaurants and pubs in the town. Next to the Visitor Information Centre, the Whitstable Museum & Art Gallery has permanent and touring exhibitions, many reflecting the town’s seafaring traditions and links with diving - the world’s first diving helmet was invented in Whitstable.
