Whitstable: Seaside Lifestyle

The charming seaside village town of Whitstable on the North Kent coast has modern lifestyle appeal alongside historic maritime tradition. In summer the town is enjoyed by many from afar who are attracted to the relaxed beach vibe and its colourful rich culture, with independent shops lining quaint Harbour Street creating the time to wander and explore vintage, craft and modern design…the ‘Garden of England’ as the county of Kent is known comes alive through its traditional architecture, nautical history and countryside beauty!
