Where to park?

Where to park in Whitstable during a sailing trip on board Thames Barge 'Greta'.

Where possible use a Long Stay Car Park as most of our sailing trips are up to 6 hours long. 



Long Stay 'Gorrell Tank' car park which is accessed via Westgate Terrace off Cromwell Road. (Satnav users should use Post Code CT5 1LB for the  Gorrell Tank car park.  There is reduced parking capacity in the Gorrell Tank Car Park on Thursdays as part is used for the Market.

There is a limited Short Stay (Max 2 hours) parking inside Whitstable Harbour and there are other car parks nearby. The Oyster car park is open from Easter to September and is adjacent to the Harbour and next to the Indoor Bowling Club on East Quay Road, which is off Tower Parade by the Harbour Garage.

  You can drop passengers off inside Whitstable Harbour but cannot take cars along the South Quay where the 'GRETA' is moored. (just a short walk from the drop off points)

During the Whitstable Oyster Festival and Whitstable Harbour Day, parking is at a premium and it can be hard to find a parking space.

The 2019 Whitstable Oyster Festival was held between Saturday 27th and Monday 29th July  The dates for 2020 are yet to be announced.
