As the warm British weather finally sets in, what better way to enjoy it then by taking a weekend break to the seaside in the beautiful Kentish town of Whitstable.

London to Whitstable

1hr 45 minutes

A small and vibrant town located just off the M2, Whitstable has everything you could want all within a short walking distance. One of the town’s most popular attractions is the harbour, built in 1832 and still in operation today! If you love your seafood, the Whitstable Fish Market is a must see, based on the South Quay of the harbour you can take a stroll around the huts and enjoy a variety of fresh, sustainable fish and shellfish caught just off the shore.

If you fancy sunny walks along the beach or a relaxing bike ride, Whitstable coastline has a lot to offer. With great access to coastal paths and a few pubs dotted along the way, you can take a mid-stroll break and try one of Whitstable’s local ales while sitting on the benches along the beach and admire the charming, colourful beach huts that perfectly frame the shore.

The town also has many cafes and restaurants all situated in and around the high street. Places like The Umbrella Cafe, often described as one of Whitstable’s hidden gems, is a great place to have lunch with the family. A community-run cafe that serves delicious homemade food and has a garden area outside perfect for fun family picnics!
