Whitstable High Streeet is quirky and interesting - like a time gone by. But it is in danger of going the way of many high streets if it is not supported.

Lovely little town with good independent shops, it makes a change from all the chain shops although there are a few they are not very noticeable, a pleasant change. Lovely fish Restaurants.
