For a small town, Whitstable is packed with history and the Whitstable museum is packed with great exhibitions that bring it to life. It makes for a fun hour and it's worth seeking out the unassuming door hidden amongst the shops.

Not a huge museum, but crammed full of interesting objects. We didn't have enough time to look at it all. Special Peter Cushing section. Lovely gallery area at the back with changing displays. Really good local history.
