  • The excellent charm of Whitstable seafront is encapsulated in the great working fishing harbour. Apart from the photogenic working boats and fishermans huts there is a craft village and large harbour cafe and restaurant. Oh and plenty of fresh fish and seafood. Do visit this harbour it really is lovely. Oysters and shellfish galore!!
