Detailed Description

Where better than Whitstable to get married? This is your special day, after all, and naturally you want to share it with family and friends not only in a special location but also in a venue that is equally original and full of character. East Quay Venue, housed within one of Whitstable’s oldest buildings located at the end of the east quay harbour, was originally the home of the Seasalter and Ham Oyster Fishery Company and, like the famous Oyster Stores, faced the shore so the oyster companies could keep a watchful eye over their precious oyster beds. Facing still onto that same shingle seashore, East Quay Venue retains the structural features and character from its coastal heritage past, offering a relaxed ‘shabby-chic’ ambience; a place that sits beside the beach and from where you can effortlessly wander to the water’s edge...whenever you choose. And the venue’s authentic seaside atmosphere and charm not only creates an unusual setting for a wedding it is an ideal place, too, for anniversaries and all memorable celebrations.
