Had a good walk around on a chilly but lovely sunny morning. There lots of independent traders around selling out of the huts and many places to try the Oysters. Worth a visit for an hour or so.

Very much a working harbour Although you have to be there early to see the catch coming in. Many fisherman's huts surrounding the harbour with several seafood snack bars and cafe's. Some are selling artisan wares.

Great place for a relaxing walk along the boardwalk enjoying the local shops and restaurants. Good for all ages but remember to wrap up well on windy / cold days!

Visited here recently being a small working harbour surrounded by small shops and includes a great fish market. Not big but you can shop, get coffee / lunch and buy fresh fish. A quaint place to visit and should be part of ones visit to Whitstable

Second visit, nice fishing harbour. Close to shops, can be pricey. We were lucky with the weather for the time of year. Very friendly people. Lots of day trippers like,us.

Whitstable harbour is a lovely, quaint place to visit, whilst obviously still functioning as a busy fishing port. The harbour market has a range of huts offering an eclectic mix of local produce, art work, souvenirs and bric a brac. There are several places to eat and drink or just enjoy a wander and drink in the salty atmosphere

From the seafood shops and stalls to the artisan market, with the backdrop of the local fishing fleet, a must do on a trip to scenic Whitetable.
