The outdoor pool also has a safe children’s splash pool to enjoy on those hot summer days but there’s so much more to do off the park as well. Whitstable is famous for its oysters but don’t feel you have to try them, like Marmite, you’ll either love them or hate them!
One of the reasons people come to Alberta is because it’s so easy to get to. You can be relaxing by the pool while others are still stuck in traffic!
But if you do fancy a trip out for the day – there’s more than Canterbury, Rochester and the coastal resorts to explore. France is closer than you think so you’ll have time to top up with duty free before you leave!

With its sense of intimacy and rich character Whitstable has secured a favoured spot in the hearts and minds of all who visit the town.
Whitstable is like no other town by the sea. Its traditional charms, strong arts culture and rich maritime history complement Whitstable’s modern appeal.
Whitstable’s main claim to fame is its oysters which remain an intrinsic part of this sea town’s character and are celebrated every July at the Oyster Festival. Oysters and other delicacies from the sea can be enjoyed at the local restaurants and pubs or taken home from the fresh fish market at the harbour.
Shoppers can delight in the town’s bohemian charm with independent craft and gift shops, galleries, delicatessens and fashion shops trading side by side with butchers and bakers. When you need to recharge with a drink and food you will be spoilt for choice with a wonderful choice of cafes, restaurants and pubs. Whitstable is one of a very few in the country that has a pub on the beach.
Whether you take the main route through the town or enjoy haphazard progress through quiet lanes and alleyways with eccentric names such as Squeeze Gut Alley, you’ll end up at the working harbour. Constructed in 1831 the harbour has an interesting history including diving, shipbuilding and fishing.
Along the coast at Tankerton, grassy slopes dip to meet the sea throwing out an invitation to visitors and locals to walk along the prom and take in some bracing sea air. There’s a chance too to get unsurpassed views of Whitstable’s skyline from The Street, a wide ridge of shingle stretching out to sea, but only revealed when the tide is low.
