Travel: Day trip to Whitstable

England isn't the most glamorous of places to have a stay cation, but it certainly has a number of cute little fishing towns and lovely places to explore during a day trip!

I wanted to find an interesting town that wasn't your usual Oxford, Bath or Cambridge so decided to drive down to Whitstable, just an hour from London. It was easy to get to and there is a huge parking lot near the harbour which was perfect!


We spent a couple of hours at the harbour, taking photos of the colourful boats and on the lookout for yummy food. The weather wasn't at its best so I was kidding myself a little in this leather jacket, but apart from the wind it was a great day trip.

I'm wearing:
Leather jacket from Iceland
Twenty8Twelve jeans
Aldo sandals
New Look top
Zara bag
Zara scarf


We walked past an area filled with small shops that had a mix of independent stalls as well as your usual market stuff, and a few food stalls in between. If you like local produce such as jam this is the best place to get it.



As all the restaurants were booked up (it was Mother's Day), we went into the local fish market cafe to taste the fresh sea food.


The fried mussels were delicious, I had two portions. They were absolutely huge, too!






We discovered a vintage market nearby, too with this beautiful pup!


I found the hessian clutch on the left, for only £5, to match my lighter one. They're great for the summer and for holidays.



Bicycles covered in knitted colours, so cool!




I loved this little town!
