July events: Whitstable Oyster Festival
One of the biggest events in Kent’s calendar, the annual oyster festival in trendy Whitstable is far more than a foodie’s fiesta.
Head to bohemian Whistable in July for a two-day celebration of the area’s famous oyster trade, featuring food, music and revelry aplenty! Every year, the beautiful seaside town hosts a series of colourful events, mixing traditional coastal celebrations with modern festivities including a huge parade, and the bustling Harbour Food Fair with dishes and drinks from around the globe. The festival also plays host to live music and comedy from top performers.
Whitstable is one of England’s most beautiful coastal towns, brimming with artists, boutiques, excellent dining, and gorgeous scenic walks. Stay in a boutique hotel, rent a fisherman’s hut for your break, or simply camp on Whitstable Hill and soak up those sea views.
