Whitstable Castle is a small but beautiful castle near the medieval fishing town of Whitstable, well known for its oysters which have been collected and eaten there since Roman times.
The Castle itself offers an interior decorated in the historic 18th Century Regency style with rich oak panelling and elaborate plaster ceilings. There is an Orangery and a Victorian Tea Room which offer refreshments – perfect for light lunches or traditional afternoon tea with stunning views out to sea across the Thames Estuary.
The castle also sits in three acres of beautifully landscaped grounds, with a Rose Garden and some mature plants which were originally planted and grown in the 1780′s!
Whitstable Castle is a fascinating tale of an estate which has been passed down over the years, with each owner adding to the castle building to leave their mark.
