Experience the living history of Whitstable’s famous and picturesque fisherman’s huts.
When in Whitstable the fisherman’s huts are a must see!
Whitstable’s black clapboard fisherman’s huts, or ‘stores’ as local fisherman would have referred to them, are something of a local icon, and a testament to the town’s rich maritime heritage. Home in the late-19th and early-20th centuries to the town’s fishermen, yachtsmen and blacksmiths, these large and impressive buildings have become synonymous with the name ‘Whitstable’. Today they are a popular tourist attraction, and are definitely worth a visit for anyone planning an afternoon at the seaside; why not make a day of it, and visit the adjacent oyster-beds of the famous Whitstable Oyster Company, and grab a drink or a bite to eat at The Forge?
