This spit of shingle goes quite far out to sea and is only accessible at low tide, but is a very nice little stroll.

Love the street, though beware the fast incoming tides! Old legend says underneath it lays Canterbury Cathedral Spire and leads to the fates of hell, of course a complete fable but it is lovely to walk on a sunny day to give a different perspective...More

If you time it right, it is a lovely walk out at low tide to the end of the Street, and quite an unusual experience to have the water on both sides as you walk. You do have to be careful and start heading back...More

When ever I get the chance to visit Whitstable I always check the tide times for a walk along the Street. There is something special about walking along a natural phenomena like this, maybe it’s the, so far unspoilt town, the harbour or childhood memories.

The Street makes for an interesting diversion from a regular beach trip and gives you a new perspective on Whitstable and Tankerton. However be wary of the tides, especially if you have small children with you. It can disappear quite quickly.

In all weathers, we have enjoyed walking beside the sea here, peaceful, charming beach huts, interesting birds, children's playground, skatepark so interesting for all ages. Don't get caught out when the sea comes in on The Street sandbank!

There aren't many places where it feels as though you're walking on the sea, but this is one. Wait for the tide to go out and walk as far as you can along the exposed spit of land for a really different experience and lovely...More

Wait till low tide & take a walk between the sea. Like parting the waves really good. The shingle is dry so you doubly need Wellington. enjoy

Excellent question. But of course geography is not square. So although Whitstable is on the Eastern Coast, the town faces north and west as it is on a 'bump' sticking up and out. The sun, variably, sets over the Island of... More
