Ever since I heard about an annual oyster festival in the UK I made sure I make room for my diary to attend. This time around I gathered my favourite people and a road trip to Whitstable. With Leon, the pom by my side we sang along to Spice Girls in the car for the 1.5-hour drive.
The park and ride is a great option if your visiting, as street parking is impossible to find during busy events. The package comes with a free bus ride to town, ending up at Tankerton Beach where the street food stalls are at. I went for one of the lobster subs and chips.
The 2017 Oyster festival had fewer oyster stalls and the town restaurants didn’t open stalls outside. The end of summer weather had a cool breeze and light rain, but the colourful beach hut houses along the beach and strolling on the beach made it calm and peaceful.
We ended up at one of the cutest girly pink café called Milk & Honey. It’s rare to find dog-friendly places in London, Whitstable is the place to be with many dog owners taking their canine buddies everywhere they go. Milk & Honey make their own pretty cakes, and tea is served up in vintage bone china cups. Once we refuelled and rested it was time to head back to London.
