With summer behind us, we’ll be putting away the shorts and t-shirts and rummaging around for a few warmer outfits. But when the old sweater looks a little bit too old, it’s time for a shopping trip to update your wardrobe for the new season.
But where best to find the perfect outfits? Here are the top shopping spots in Kent.
Bluewater Shopping Centre
Bluewater, Dartford, Greenhithe DA9 9ST
If you’re an avid shopper, you’ve probably heard of Bluewater before. It’s the place to go if you’re into designer brands like Michael Kors, Calvin Klein, or House of Fraser. Don’t panic if you’re more of a bargain hunter though, there’s always the less expensive shops
Shopping can be hard work, hence the phrase ‘shop till you drop’. And at Bluewater there are plenty of places to stop for a bite to eat so that you can shop till you almost drop, have a pit stop, and then carry on shopping!
This whole town is full of shops, from boutique shops to big brands, whatever you’re looking for from your shopping experience, Tunbridge Wells probably has it.
This shopping trip is a little more spread out than Bluewater though, so there might be a bit more walking involved if you want to find the perfect outfit.
Again though, there are plenty of places to stop for lunch to break up the day a bit, in fact there’s probably even more choice when it comes to food.
Ashford Designer Outlet
Ashford Designer Outlet Centre, Kimberley Walk, Ashford TN24 0SD
Ashford is another great shopping destination for those that love designer brands. With a selection of designer makes and big brands, and shops laid out in a circle shape, it’s a relatively stress free shopping experience.
It’s easy to navigate and find what you’re looking for, and there’s no worry of getting lost. That’s not to say it’s limited in size though. In fact, there are so many shops of such a substantial size that you could easily spend a whole day at this outlet (though your bank account may not agree).
So what shops can expect to find here? There are too many shops to list in this article, but to name a few, there are designer makes like French Connection, Kurt Geiger, Ted Baker and Abercrombie and Fitch.
There’s something for everyone, and being an outlet, there’s almost always great deals on. So whatever your budget, be it £100 or £1000, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
