Whitstable Harbour offers a unique location for new businesses. Not only is the harbour itself capable of handling vessels up to 95 metres, but there are also facilities for light ship repair and maintenance, and an active fishing industry.
The harbour is also developing as a popular tourist attraction both on and off the water. The sailing barge ‘Greta’ offers exciting sea trips, and other passenger vessels such as the ‘Balmoral’ and the paddle steamer ‘Waverley’ regularly visit the port.
Based at the heart of thriving and renowned Whitstable, the harbour is an attractive location particularly for marine based businesses. If you are considering re-locating and have a viable business plan, please contact Caroline Hicks at Canterbury City Council on 01227 862064 or at firstname.lastname@example.org to be based in this thriving location.
