Whitstable Overview

Whitstable is a pretty seaside town, set on the South Coast not far from the main port of Dover, and is probably best known for its oysters. During the summer months, the busy harbour attracts many people who are looking to sample the fresh fish and shellfish on offer. Also set on the English Channel, Whitstable is within easy reach of the busy port of Dover and the medical city of Canterbury, in the county of Kent, which, being within commuting distance of London, is one of the more expensive counties to live in. Kent itself has a high speed rail link direct to London, within easy distance of Whitstable.

For a two-bed property within Whitstable expect to pay in the region of £350,000, rents are approximately £800 per month. Council tax is an average price for Kent, with Whitstable falling under Canterbury Council.

Whitstable Job Opportunities

Whitstable has a wide variety of opportunities available, from tourism and shop work, through to teaching and care jobs. With Whitstable being a popular tourist location, there is a wide variety of seasonal and part time jobs available in the tourist and hotel industries; however, there are also full time opportunities available. If you wish to travel further afield, there are a number of opportunities within the nearby towns of Canterbury and Dover.

Whitstable Employment Trends

Whitstable is well known for its fishing industry, especially its world famous oysters and a number of locals have jobs in Whitstable within this industry. Thanks to the rail links to London, however, in addition to the excellent road links to Canterbury, Whitstable is generally regarded as a commuter town. This is due not only to the good road and rail networks available, but also the higher salaries available in nearby areas. Nevertheless, Whitstable's location is a huge advantage, and tourism as well as fishing and farming are all big industries.
