Store your luggage around Whitstable with Bounce

Whitstable is a charming seaside town located on the north coast of Kent in the UK. It definitely falls into the picturesque category, with shingle beaches and quaint alleyways that blend maritime heritage, English history, and contemporary culture perfectly. A highlight here is the historic harbor, and the beautiful setting must inspire artists because the art scene is top-notch.

Due to its location, you won't be surprised to hear that Whitstable is known for its oysters, and one of the town's most famous attractions is the Whitstable Oyster Festival. Held annually, the festival is a testament to the area's association with oyster harvesting, which dates all the way back to Roman times.

The town's natural beauty is also a significant draw. Whitstable Beach, with its colorful beach huts and stunning sunsets, is perfect for a leisurely stroll or a day of relaxation. The nearby Tankerton Slopes offer panoramic views of the Thames Estuary and you could do a lot worse than flying a kite or picnicking here.

It's safe to say that Whitstable will keep you busy. One way to make things easier on yourself is to find luggage storage for any extra items you're carrying around. The Bounce luggage storage network is at your disposal and is the perfect spot to store things like shopping bags and beach gear while you continue sightseeing. Of course, you can store suitcases and backpacks, too.

Whitstable city guide

Top things to do in Whitstable

Aside from a trip to the beach, walking enthusiasts can embark on the Crab and Winkle Way, a scenic 7.5-mile route linking Whitstable to the historic city of Canterbury. The town's working harbor is another key attraction, buzzing with activity and lined with fishing huts. Here, visitors can browse the fresh catch of the day and enjoy a range of seafood delicacies. You'll also find a market here and plenty of other shopping opportunities in the area. Have a day of bad weather? No problem. Whitstable has shopping and museums to keep you entertained.

Museums in Whitstable

Whitstable Community Museum and Gallery

Run by dedicated volunteers, this museum hosts various exhibitions throughout the year. The displays range from historical artifacts related to Whitstable's seafaring and industrial past (oyster trade) to contemporary art and photography exhibitions. Want to delve deeper? Whitstable Community Museum is also a learning hub for things like workshops, talks, and educational programs. While you're here, make sure to check out Invicta, a steam engine that's among the world's oldest, and the old diving equipment and dredges used to find, you guessed it, oysters.

So, stop by the ticket office, pay the £3 entry fee, and get to know Whitstable better.

Fishslab Gallery

Anyone curious about Whitstable's creative community needs to take a trip to the Fishslab Gallery. We can't tell you what exactly will be on when you arrive as the exhibits change frequently, with new art on display every week, but what we can tell you is that the art will be intriguing and local. All the pieces here are contemporary and the space itself is artist-run. The location is almost as interesting as the art: the gallery is in a former fishmonger's shop!

Beaney House of Art & Knowledge

This museum is in nearby Canterbury and is the perfect place to visit for a dose of history in more ways than one. In addition to its impressive collection of paintings by local artists like Thomas Sidney Cooper (they have his unfinished painting called Sheep in the Snow, where you can still see his original pencil marks), this museum is in one of the most impressive buildings. It's Grade II listed and has been open to the public since 1899, having been refurbished in 2009. Make sure you take the time to appreciate the intricate details of the facade before going inside.

Other things you can see inside include a collection of Magna Carta Barons sculptures, taxidermied animals, and gold from the Klondike. It's a real mix of things that should be popular with both kids and adults.

Whitstable's museums are fairly modest in size, so they don't have amenities like luggage storage onsite. It's easy to find luggage storage near these attractions when you use the Bounce app. Leave your things with us for a few hours and pick them up once you've exhausted the museum scene in Whitstable and its surroundings.

Shopping in Whitstable

Whitstable's High Street and its surrounding lanes are filled with independent shops, galleries, and boutiques, offering unique shopping experiences. From vintage clothes to handmade jewelry and artisanal goods, the town’s shopping scene is a treasure trove for those seeking something special as a souvenir.

Harbour Street

For a decidedly quaint shopping experience, head to Harbour Street for a great mix of shops with almost overly charming storefronts. From fashionable boutiques offering the latest in beachwear and casual chic to cozy bookshops where you can find a perfect read for a lazy beach day, there’s something for every shopper. Art enthusiasts will be drawn to the galleries showcasing local art and handmade crafts. Plus, as you might expect, gourmet food shops and delis are scattered along the street, selling the famous Whitstable oysters.

Valentine's Vintage

While it may not be ideal for travelers with limited suitcase space, Valentine's Vintage is a fun shop to browse around on Oxford Street. The main focus here is furniture from the 1970s, but you'll find older ceramics and even a few clothing items. It is the best-curated shop in the local area, so if you have room, grab yourself something special.

South Quay Shed

This large space is full of independent retailers selling things like clothing, art, souvenirs, and home goods in the heart of Whitstable's Harbour. Aside from scratching that shopping itch, you can dine here or grab a few drinks. It's a great one-stop shop for the afternoon.

Shopping while also carrying extra luggage can be a pain. So, if it's a travel day and you're trying to squeeze in some shopping before you leave town, head to any of the Bounce luggage storage locations in Whitstable and let us worry about your stuff for a bit.

Restaurants in Whitstable

Whitstable Oyster Company

You had to guess that one of our recommended restaurants would specialize in oysters, right? Well, not only does Whitstable Oyster Company offer these local delicacies, but the restaurant is actually an old oyster store. The ambiance is rustic and charming, and if you're not in the mood for oysters, any of the fresh seafood should be enough to tempt you.

The Lobster Shack

Since this is a seaside town, it's probably not shocking that many of the restaurants favor seafood menus. The Lobster Shack is your place for shellfish (the name says it all), the ever-present oysters, and a classic helping of English fish and chips. Make sure you order a pint with your meal, and this place is casual, so everyone, including the kids, will feel welcome.

Samphire

Ever thought about foraging for your dinner but just don't have the time? Samphire has you covered. This rustic restaurant feels like an eclectic French bistro (complete with a chalkboard menu), and some of the greenery and herbs they use in their dishes are foraged locally. Pair that with the ubiquitous oysters and a decent selection of meat and other seafood, and you have a winner for your dinner in Whitstable.

None of the restaurants we've mentioned will have luggage storage facilities for your extra bags, so remember to plan ahead and drop off your baggage with Bounce on your way to your next tasty meal.

Conclusion

Whitstable starts to draw you in from the moment you arrive. With its rich maritime history, thriving arts scene, and natural beauty, it offers a quintessential British seaside experience. Whether it's savoring fresh oysters, exploring local art, or simply relaxing by the sea, Whitstable has something special to offer every visitor.

And if your exploration of the region doesn't stop at Whitstable, we also have luggage storage options in nearby Canterbury, Margate, and Rochester. Happy travels, and don't forget to try the oysters!
