This is an easy walk, physically plus the directions are fairly straightforward. One of the attractions of this walk is that it provides a good contrast to some of the classic coastal walks, such as Seaford to Eastbourne (book 2 walk no.28), or Hastings to Rye (book 2 walk no.29). Phone ahead for The Sportsman pub.
Trains go from London Victoria to Faversham, journey time just over an hour. Whitstable is one stop down the line from Faversham, so buy a day return to Whitstable.
