Things to do in Whitstable & surrounding areas

The Duke of Cumberland is located in the heart of Whitstable, perfectly placed for you to enjoy all the attractions the coastal town has to offer. Whitstable is a town positioned on the North Coast on Kent where the Swale Estuary and Greater Thames Estuary converge. It is five miles north of Canterbury and two miles west of Herne Bay. Whether it’s a romantic getaway, a family holiday, a special occasion, or a seaside visit, we have something for everyone.

Famous for its seafood, the reinvented Oyster Rocks Festival in September is a highlight of the year. The two- day Regatta in August also provides endless enjoyment for everyone including music, firework displays and seaborne events.

The Harbour of Whitstable was built in 1832 and is a few minutes’ walk from the Duke of Cumberland. The harbour today remains extremely important to Whitstable’s heritage and also hosts an exciting fish market.  Afterwards, why not browse the art galleries for local art and explore independent boutique shops on the high street?

Whatever your plans are, the Duke of Cumberland has a delicious meal, a refreshing drink, and a comfortable night’s sleep waiting for you when you return.
