The Kent region

Kent is in the southeastern corner of England. It borders the River Thames and the North Sea to the north, and the Straits of Dover and the English Channel to the south. France is 34 kilometres (21 mi) across the Strait. Kent is known as The Garden of England due to it's many orchards and hop gardens.

In the 11th century, the people of Kent adopted the motto Invicta, meaning "undefeated". This naming followed the invasion of Britain by William of Normandy.

In 1830 one of the earliest passenger railway services was opened by the Canterbury and Whitstable Railway Company, and 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.

Kent is one of the warmest parts of Britain. On 10 August 2003, in the hamlet of Brogdale near Faversham the temperature reached 38.5 °C (101.3 °F), the hottest temperature ever recorded in the United Kingdom

Whitstable is sometimes warmer than other parts of Kent due to it being backed by the North Downs to the south.


Whitstable is a seaside town in Northeast Kent, Southeast England. It is approximately 8 kilometres north of the city of Canterbury and approximately 3 kilometres west of the seaside town of Herne Bay. It is part of the City of Canterbury district.

Whitstable is famous for its oysters, which have been collected in the area since at least Roman times. The town itself dates back to before the writing of the Domesday Book. Whitstable's distinctive character is popular with tourists, and its maritime heritage is celebrated with the annual oyster festival. Freshly caught shellfish are available throughout the year at several seafood restaurants and pubs in the town.

The longest established event is the Regatta which has moved from the original Whitstable to Tankerton for more land based events with fairground and fireworks on the elevated Slopes. Which is a pleasant half hour costal walk or 4 minute drive away.

The importance of oysters to the tradition of Whitstable is celebrated with the Oyster Festival in July each year. The nine-day festival starts with an opening parade on the nearest Saturday to St James' Day. The parade starts with the official "Landing of the Catch", followed by the procession of the oysters in a horse-drawn dray through the town, stopping to deliver the catch to local restaurants, cafes and public houses. The rest of the festival consists of entertainment for both adults and children, with local art on display around the town, and many establishments offering local fish dishes.

The Whitstable Museum and Gallery displays artifacts and portraits relating to the town's seafaring traditions, with special features on oysters, diving and shipping.

The Playhouse Theatre Whitstable is used for a variety of different acts from Herne Bay Operatic Society to Harry Hill, Jo Brand and Paul Merton.

The town has shingle/sandy beaches flanking the harbour, where sunbathing, swimming and water sports are popular. The beaches east and west are unique amongst seaside towns in the south east of England for having no promenade; making them generally peaceful. An exception is Long Beach to the immediate east of the harbour where there is a base for jet skis. A notable feature of Whitstable is The Street, a natural strip of shingle on clay bank which runs out to sea at right angles to the coast, for a distance of about half a mile. It is the last remnant of the Swale river valley to the north of the town lost to sea erosion over millennia. Located to the east of the harbour, The Street is revealed only at low tide, when it is possible to walk out along it as well as swim either side in safe, sandy bottomed shallows. A view of The Street can be seen on the hilltop lawns of Tankerton Slopes.

Whitstable Castle is situated on the border of Whitstable and the suburb of Tankerton.

A now-redundant offshore World War II sea fort is visible from the town's coast. Sailing trips are available from the harbour to the windfarm, the sea fort and a seal watching spot in the Thames Estuary.

"We had a lovely relaxed break at the Bakehouse. It's a very sweet and homely place to stay."

Would have been perfect if it was right on the beach as the main photo suggests, we were expecting sea views and as it happens it's actually off the high street down an alley, nowhere near the sea. It's about a 10 minute walk. That was the only disappointment but other than that, the Bakehouse has everything you need for a lovely peaceful holiday break.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and are pleased you enjoyed your stay even though we are not right on the sea.....we wish we were!

"The photos are very misleading."

It is actually located down a dirty ally by a smoking patio of a grotty bar. Don't book if you want sea views or if you think curtains are a luxury.… More

We are sorry that unlike our other guests you were unhappy with our property. Whitstable is a maze of alleyways with buildings behind buildings which most think gives it character...we disagree that the one by the Bakehouse is dirty. The photos and our listing actually state it is a 5 minute walk to the sea so not sure why you expected sea views....if sea views were available, prices for accommodation of our standards would be much higher than we charge. Hopefully, future guests will realise the review you have left is rather unfair.
