The Whitstable Shop & Visitor Information Centre is located in the centre of Whitstable town centre in Harbour Street and run by The Whitstable Improvement Trust, a charitable organisation formed in 1989. Offering residents and visitors information on the towns history and heritage, visitor attractions and places to go whilst in Whitstable and East Kent plus events and activities. The shop also sells Whitstable themed souvenirs, postcards, greetings cards, books, gifts, handmade local arts and crafts and seasonal goodies throughout the year. The Whitstable Improvement Trust makes improvements to public and community spaces, many of them now familiar landmarks including the Deck at Dead Man's Corner, Starvation Point and the Tankerton Outdoor Gym.
