A fabulous free dating idea would be to visit the newly renovated castle and gardens. Originally built in the 1790’s, it has been given a new lease of life thanks to Canterbury City Council’s restoration grant. New features of the castle include the Roof Garden - offering beautiful views across the grounds, as well as the Wynn Ellis Room – a grand Victorian tea room serving up tempting homemade cakes and other such delights. This historical location would be a great place to go on a first date, why not suggest it to one of your chosen matches?
Wheelers Oyster Bar
Forget fish and chips, the top seaside nosh in Whitstable is undoubtedly its oysters. The best – and oldest – place to get your fix is at Wheelers: established in 1856, the bright pink exterior and tiny interior of this local landmark is loved by many. Serving up the freshest and finest seafood around for miles, despite there being a limited amount of seating, you get the feeling this place would still be packed out if it was twice the size. Book a table for two in advance and enjoy one of the best Whitstable dating ideas!
Whitsable Museum and Gallery
If you’re looking for a low-key date location, this museum could be the perfect spot. Quiet enough to allow conversation to flow, but interesting enough to keep you both engaged during any natural lulls; it has a wide variety of exhibitions based on the history of the local area. Showcasing information and artefacts relating to the seafaring and railway industries - as well as some famous local residents – it’s a true slice of Whitstable charm. If money is tight, this would make another great free dating option!
There’s not many beaches in the world that have their very own pub – apart from Whitstable of course! Old Neptune has regularly suffered tide damage over the years – unsurprising given its position right in the firing line of any northern winds – but its enduring nature has won out. A date here, especially at sunset, could be the perfect and intimate end to your day together.
A pier, a stick of rock, the odd amusement arcade, possibly a fine figure of a man in socks and sandals... these are the stock images that come to mind upon the mere mention of an English seaside town, right? Well, wrong: when it comes to Whitstable that is. This small town on the North East coast of Kent is unlike your archetypal beach resort. Famous for its oysters, it holds a sort of bohemian charm that resembles a much smaller and quainter Brighton. It’s individual arty shops and upmarket seafood restaurants can be found littered along its even quirkier street names – Squeeze Gut and Skinner’s Alley being two of the most infamous. For Whitstable singles, this means the experience of dating can be entirely enjoyable.
