Explore Whitstable In A Classic Car
Nestling on the North Kent coast Whitstable is essentially a small fishing town still having a vibrant fully functioning harbour. It has international fame for its world class oysters. It has a number of top class restaurants several specialising in oysters and locally caught fish.

Over the last few years more and more people have discovered its charms. This has ensured that there is plenty to do for families or couples alike.

Why not take a long wander along the beach. From the Harbour heading East you will quickly come across “The Street” which is a natural phenomenon made up of shingle on clay stretching one mile out into the Thames estuary which is caused by the collision of two currents depositing shingle from other areas of the shore. At low tide it is a great place for supervisedchildren to swim and paddle in the shallow waters either side. You could continue walking past the large grassy slopes of Tankerton, past Swalecliff, through the popular beaches of Herne Bay past its Pier , Bandstand and Clock Tower on under the cliffs at Beltinge ending up at the Roman fort of Recolver where the testing for Barnes Wallis' "bouncing bombs” was undertaken during the second world war.

Waterskiing, windsurfing and sailing are all popular in the area and there are a number of cruses on offer to visit the Maunsell sea - forts, wind turbines and local Seal colonies.

If that seems a little energetic there are a plethora of cafes and bars in Whitstable many with top class entertainment both during the day and in the evenings. The local Folk scene is particularly strong. Whitstable has a lovely Theatre with an excellent band of players if you are lucky enough to get a ticket. There is also a small but interesting Museum. If art is something that tickles your fancy then you will find yourself in your element looking around all the art galleries in the town.

Whitstable has a lovely Castle, a huge village green at Duncan Downs a picturesque windmill, protected marshlands, country parks, bowling alley and both indoor and outdoor bowls. The list really does go on and on. Hard to believe that such a small town can have so much happening. One last thing not to be overlooked was the importance of the Crab and Winkle railway which was the third railway line ever built and the first, in the world, to take passengers and issue season tickets. Whitstable had the first ever railway bridge up until 1971 when it was demolished to make way for a new road. The line also boasted the world’s first passenger tunnel of which more later...
