ABOUT: Since the gargantuan Westfield appeared, Bluewater’s dimensions seemed to shrink by comparison, however it is still one of the largest and most popular shopping centres in the south east. Furthermore, it’s managing to win awards in Public Relations, beating competitors from all over the globe, so its star is clearly not waning. Stores are mostly of the high street variety with the odd designer offering such as AX Armani Exchange and All Saints, along with beloved department stores such as John Lewis and House of Fraser. Aside from clothes, there are shoe stores, opticians, electrical stores and toy shops, imagine all the UK’s retail chains under one roof. The same applies to the food offering, from Burger King to Gourmet Burger Kitchen with La Tasca and TGI Friday’s in between. Additionally, you can get your car waxed to shiny perfection at Motorclean, unwind after a hard day’s shopping at the Molton Brown Day Spa, or catch a movie at the late opening cinema. The complex is also doing its bit for the environment, by reducing energy consumption, switching to non-chemical cleaning processes and supporting local transport initiatives.
