Whitstable Community Museum & Gallery


Whitstable, with neighbouring Chestfield, Seasalter, Swalecliffe and Tankerton, have the most amazing and varied histories. This volunteer-run museum prides itself in telling the local stories of Diving, Fishing, Shipwrecks, Shipbuilding, Oysters and has one of the world’s oldest railway locomotive, Invicta, on display. The museum displays the science, education, literature, trades and manufacturing that have flourished in Whitstable over several centuries.


“We particularly welcome children and we have many enjoyable but challenging activities to amuse them. Whitstable itself has many quaint, old buildings and alleyways which present a gloriously mixed street scene.”
