"It was great. I have lived in Whitstable for 30 years but still learnt and saw new things. Completed it with a family from Italy and it made their visit so much more interesting and special. Love the 'look up, look down' prompts too. Looking forward to completing the Faversham and Ramsgate trails next." - Sharon
