Bluewater Centre, Greenhithe, Kent

UK travel information

This out-of town shopping mall is situated very near the Dartford Crossings of the river Thames. It provides a wide range of shops and stores in a charming setting, with walks around the perimeter and the small perimeter lakes which give the centre its name. 

Bluewater Centre, Greenhithe, Kent

Arranged over three malls, the range of shops is very wide and includes a number of smaller, specialist shops as well as the major retail names. There are about 50 places to eat within the complex, ranging from quick drinks to elegant dining. 

As an alternative to shopping, visitors have a choice of entertainment. The multi- screen cinema is very popular and shows all the latest films. For youngsters, there is the “Bookworm Wednesday” club. Each Wednesday morning (10am), members of the club can watch a cartoon and film show for free; entry is on a “first come first served” basis and previously filling in an entry form (also available online). 

There are a number of attractions geared to young people. By the water there is a play area with sand pit and picnic park – ideal for the warmer days. Inside the centre there are various organised activities and events for the young during the major school holidays.  Children of all ages can practice their skills on the climbing wall in the Yellow Welcome Hall. There are professionals on hand for instruction and supervision. Older children (over 11 years) can receive basic driving instruction at the enclosed Young Drivers’  area. They can experience the basics of driving in a safe environment. 

For entertainment with action, the Sega 3D motion “ride” is a must. The moving seats and air jets allied to the film action, give a very real “experience”. 

For adults who would like a complete change from the hustle of shopping, Bluewater provides a “Place of Quiet” in the Lower Rose Gallery. This is available to all for contemplation or quiet discussion either alone or in small groups. 

If you are visiting Bluewater by car, the M25 passes close by; leave at junction 2. There is ample free parking all round the centre (13,000 spaces) and good disabled parking and access, all clearly signposted.
