Whitefriars Shopping Centre


Whitefriars is Canterbury's award-winning shopping district, with over 70 of the country's leading fashion and lifestyle retailers located in a pleasant, open environment in the heart of the city. An impressive Fenwick department store heads up the extensive retail line-up, which includes Zara, H&M, Monsoon/Accessorize, Next, La Senza, Jane Norman, Topshop/Topman and River Island, whilst the Marlowe Arcade is home to several high end fashion brands, including Coast, Karen Millen, Hobbs, Phase Eight and Swarovski. There's also major branches of M&S, BHS and Boots, all within easy access of the Whitefriars multi-storey car park.

There's a Shopmobility service on Level 2 of the car park for people with mobility problems and the bus station, Park & Ride stops and cycle facility are located alongside the centre, so you don't have far to walk with heavy bags! Most stores trade between 9am and 5.30pm Monday to Saturday and 10/11am to 4/5pm Sundays, but check the Whitefriars website for details of individual store opening times.
