Whitstable – 27 miles

On the coast, the justly-famous Whitstable Oysters have seen this charming port dubbed the Pearl of Kent. These days it has a funky, bohemian air, with its bustling seafood eateries, picturesque lanes, delis, artisanal bakeries, boutique shops and art galleries. Soak up the atmosphere in a welcoming pub; The Old Neptune sits right on the shingle beach Hut out Whitstable Harbour Village. So much more than a market, it is a unique seaside community of leading artists, artisans, food producers and local independent retailers, all trading from their own traditional fisherman’s huts on the quayside in Whitstable Harbour.
