Tower Hill Whitstable CT5 2BW 01227 281 726
Whitstable Castle was never a real castle, more a castellated family home; nor is it particularly ancient – its oldest parts date from around 1790. But it’s a local landmark, looking spick and span after a £3 million restoration. While the castle is often used for weddings, conventions and private hire, if there is nothing happening you can admire the immaculately refurbished, panelled interior. The main attractions, however, are the ornamental gardens – which will take a few years to reach full maturity – the Orangery Tea Rooms, and the excellent playground for three- to eight-year-olds. The gardens frequently play host to fêtes, markets and the like.
The playground here is great, there is hidden treasure everywhere!
We went on a dull March day but our toddler loved all the different things and her father enjoyed the fast roundabout! There's a ship to climb around and several different 'play houses' on bouncy stilts. Aparently there is a little stream running in hot weather to play in.
