Welcome to Bluewater, simply the most exciting shopping and leisure destination, situated in Kent. 

Rising out of a former chalk quarry among 50 metre-high cliffs, Bluewater’s striking architecture is not only unique but has been designed to make your visit easy and enjoyable. Surrounded by 50 acres of lakes, parkland and trees, it’s worth taking a break from the retail therapy and discovering Bluewater outdoors.

The triangular design of Bluewater boasts three anchor stores at each point: John Lewis, Marks & Spencer and House of Fraser. Three distinct malls connect these stores with retailers grouped together for easy shopping navigation. We have many of the biggest names in retailing here at Bluewater including Apple, Hugo Boss, TopShop, H&M as well as bespoke stores and boutiques such as Mont Blanc and the Cath Kidston concept store.

So, whether you want to shop till you drop at over 330 stores, take in a movie at our fully digital, 13-screen Showcase Cinema, enjoy a relaxing meal or visit Glow, our exhibition and events venue, the choice is all yours.

And if you need any help or advice during your visit, please head to one of our Concierge desks where our specially trained hosts can tell you everything you need to know to make the most out of your time at Bluewater. We look forward to greeting you….
