(United Kingdom)

Whitstable is a seaside town in the county of Kent, about 90 km from London (an hour by train) and 8 km from Canterbury, to which it also belongs and under which it falls administratively.

For all, Whitstable is synonymous with oysters and the famous Oyster Festival held annually in the streets and especially in the town's harbour.

It is also home to one of the oldest railways in England, operating since 1830.
