BRIEF INTRODUCTION TO WHITSTABLE: A WONDERFUL HOLIDAY DESTINATION
A haven in the South East, Whitstable has a contemporary atmosphere within a characterful and eccentric coastal setting. 60 miles east of London (80mins by train from Victoria), and 6 miles north of the Cathedral city of Canterbury, Whitstable is most famous for its Oysters but recent years has seen its contemporary arts scene and restaurants/pubs gather just as much attention. Regardless of whether it’s a glorious sunny day or crisp winter one, Whitstable’s miles of beaches, pretty weatherboard cottages, fabulous sunsets and cosmopolitan atmosphere, make it difficult to beat!
The oldest railway bridge in the world was in Old Bridge Road in Whitstable.
The Whitstable Diving Company was the first one in the world, and many of the first divers lived in “Dollar Row” and they were named for the money they earned.Whitstable Facts
