Whitstable Castle and Gardens

Whitstable Castle and Gardens


A glorious landmark building on the seafront between Whitstable and Tankerton. Formerly a Victorian family home, Whitstable Castle and gardens have been restored by the Heritage Lottery and Canterbury City Council for the enjoyment of the public. 3 acres of landscaped gardens, a wonderful pirate playground for children and a Victorian-styled tearoom. Great views from our roof terrace across Whitstable Harbour and the estuary. Guided tours on the hour and half hour, from Reception.

Disabled access to all floors within the castle including the Castle Roof Garden. Garden paths are wheelchair accessible.

Organised by:
Canterbury Society/The Whitstable Castle Trust.
