We had never been to this part of the country before, so did not know what to expect but just wanted a short break after Christmas somewhere different. We decided on Whitstable as a base to stay and were not disappointed. This is a lovely coastal town that has retained its character with a good selection of independent shops, coffee bars/cafes, pubs etc. Okay here are a few chain outlets, Weatherspoons, Zizzi to name but two, but these are out numbered by the independents which are obviously well supported by the locals. Considering our stay was in January and it was, well a bit on the damp side there was a warmth about the place. The locals we met were friendly and helpful giving us directions when we looked a little lost. So, Whitstable served us well for our short break.
