The South East England region
Kent,The Garden of England,has everything from the rolling hills of the North Downs Way to the surprising solitude of the north Kent estuaries and marshes. Canterbury boasts its spectacular medieval cathedral while near Sandwich at Richborough you can experience the early Roman settlement of Britain.
Castles(Dover,Leeds,Walmer), fishing ports and medieval towns make this corner of Britain endlessly fascinating, while the countryside provides wonderful walks, both coastal and inland.
Whitstable has long been associated with locally caught seafood and in particular oysters, it has a working harbour with a small fleet of fishing boats that catch fish daily for sale in the harbour fish market.
In recent times,Whitstable and its vicinity has become nationally acclaimed for its restaurants and places to eat.
The countryside nearby is great for walking and cycling with very little to interrupt you between Whitstable and Canterbury except woodland - there is a great ride which takes you to Canterbury on the Crab and Winkle Way (the Victorian railway line which took fish and oysters to London ) now set up for walkers and riders to enjoy themselves free from the hassle of traffic.
Whitstable has been voted the town in the UK with the most varied and healthy independent shop scene; and you are staying right in the middle of that! The Whiting Post and its sister shop, The Clothes Horse, are both essential parts of the retail experience. There are many other shops well worth a visit.
The beach at Whitstable and Tankerton are wonderful places for swimming,water sports or just watching the fabulous sunsets.
