Whitstable is a hub of culture, food and great views and a visit to its long shingled beach puts you in a perfect position to enjoy all that this vibrant town has to offer.

A stroll along the beach will lead you to a cluster of independent stalls, galleries and shops. If you’re on the lookout for good food, those famous oysters are a must, but you’ll also find plenty of places to find some good old fashioned fish and chips.

The beach is a fantastic destination for water sports and you’ll spot plenty of people windsurfing and sailing in the sea.

When you’ve had your fill of oysters and fish and chips, the 7 mile Crab and Winkle Way cycle trail will lead you right into the centre of another iconic Kentish town, so saddle up and cycle from coast to Canterbury Cathedral.
