Visit Whitstable - Best of Whitstable

Whitstable (/ˈwɪtstəbəl/, locally [ˈwɪʔstəbl]) is a seaside town on the north coast of Kent in south-east England, 8 kilometres (5 mi) north of Canterbury and 3 kilometres (2 mi) west of Herne Bay. It has a population of about 32,000. Whitstable is famous for oysters, which have been collected in the area since Roman times and are celebrated at the annual Whitstable Oyster Festival. In 1830, one of the earliest passenger railway services was opened by the Canterbury and Whitstable Railway Company; in 1832, the company opened Whitstable harbour and extended the line to enable passage to London from the port. The railway has since closed but the harbour still plays an important role in the town's economy.
