A higgledy-piggledy collage of pretty shop fronts, independent boutiques and pocket-sized eateries, Harbour Street is to Whitstable what Catherine Hill is to Frome or Mermaid Street to Rye. Close enough to the seafront that you can taste the salt in the air, it’s a good place for first-time visitors to get a flavour of Whitstable. Browse colourful, vintage-inspired clothing at The Whiting Post, sustainable crafts at Frank or pick up a beach read at Harbour Books. Go easy on the samples at The Cheese Box; you’ll want to save room for an ice-cream from Sundae Sundae.
