Stay In Whitstable 2013








Whitstable is a charming historic harbour town and is famous for Oysters and beautiful sunsets. Enjoy and taste the oysters in its variety of restaurants, bistros and pubs, all within easy walking distance of Alliston House.

The fantastic sunsets have been captured by many artists over the years and Whitstable has a very lively artistic community, reflected in its variety of galleries. Wander through the narrow streets and strange sounding alleyways and investigate the many boutiques and variety of shops. Don't miss visiting the museum and check out what is playing at the local Theatre.

Visit Cushing's Seat, the view made famous by Peter Cushing, who resided for many years in Whitstable. It is only a short walk to the harbour where you can purchase fresh fish brought in by the fisherman that still operate here.

There are many attractions for the more athletic including two golf courses, indoor and outdoor bowling, windsurfing, swimming, sailing, surfing, para-sailing, tennis.

At nearby Tankerton, the beach has been awarded a Blue Flag for cleanliness and has a very safe beach for children to play and swim. Don't miss 'The Street' ..... a walk at low tide which takes you out on the shingle to see where the two different currents meet each other. There are also Tennis courts near to the Grand Pavilion.

A very relaxing stay awaits, with plenty of places to stroll and explore.
