About this location
The Kent region
The region is a perfect base for travelling to Canterbury, London and France. East Kent is a beautiful rural area with a wonderful historic coast line, rich in wild life and local foods, wine and beers.
Whitstable is a fascinating, historic fishing port famous for its Oysters from the Roman Times. The small harbour is alive with fishing boats off loading fresh fish to the markets and restaurants in the town. The birth place of deep sea diving with displays in the museum detailing the history and the men who developed this dangerous occupation. Also famous for the Crab and Winkle Line, the first steam train before Stevenson's Rocket which took fish and other commodities from the Harbour to Canterbury. The Irish Village is a unique and special place in Whitstable and a wonderful place to say and enjoy the local area or as a base for wider travelling
