Bluewater

About

Occupying 154,000m2, the Bluewater Shopping Centre is the largest in England. Before plunging into this shopping Utopia, relax and refresh in the Welcome Halls and visit one of the Concierge Desks where all the information needed for an exciting and successful day is available.

The triangular site houses over 330 stores distributed through three individually styled malls. The Guildhall offers classic high fashion retail, with lifestyle stores and, in The Village, gourmet restaurants and cafés.

The Rose Gallery is family focused, with major high street retailers and, for a bit of fun and food, the Wintergarden.

The Thames Walk has high street fashion along with themed cafés, American style diners and a sports bar.

The site itself provides a setting of great contrast. Surrounded by towering 50 metre high chalk cliffs, the buildings stand amidst tranquil lakes, trees and parkland. Here cycles can be hired, as can rowing boats, or there is fishing, putting and rock-climbing to occupy an hour or two. For younger visitors there is an adventure playground; it is an apt description for the Timberland Discovery Trail, and the All Stars active one.

Returning inside, or in inclement weather, there are 40 cafés, bars and restaurants, a 13 screen cinema and for the self indulgent, a Molton Brown Day Spa.

Bluewater is just off junction 2 of the M25 between Dartford and Gravesend in Kent. For those that travel by car there are 13,000 car park spaces and by train from London or the Medway towns Greenhithe station is linked to Bluewater by shuttle buses.


This amazing place is perhaps not a day out so much as a week’s experience. It is one of our big attractions. Come! Enjoy!
