Whitstable Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Kent...

Standing at the mouth of the River Swale, Whitstable is both a curiosity and a delightful seaside town, the destination for numerous yachtsmen, surfers, sun-seekers and lovers of fresh seafood.

Famous for its oysters – the town stages an Oyster Festival each year – it holds three records: its working harbour built in 1832 served the world’s first-ever passenger-carrying railway (the ‘Crab and Winkle Line’ closed in the 1950s and is now a walkway), its golf clubhouse is reputed to be the oldest anywhere and it was here that the diving helmet was invented.
