Whitstable Castle and Gardens is a stunning venue set in three acres of beautiful landscaped gardens, just 200m from Tankerton beach and a few minutes walk away from the historic Whitstable Harbour.
Whitstable Castle and Gardens or Tankerton Towers as it was first called started life as a residence for the Pearson family in the late 1790s and over its long history, it has been developed and improved by successive owners and a Heritage Lottery Grant. Following a £3m refurbishment the Castle is now managed by the Whitstable Castle Trust.
The Castle and Gardens provides a unique and special venue for wedding, private parties, local classes, corporate and community events.
The Orangery Tearooms are open seven days a week 10am to 5pm (April to October) and 10am to 4pm (November to March). The gardens are open to the public free of charge seven days per week and feature a fabulous pirate themed adventure playground for children.
