McArthurGlen Ashford

In the heart of Kent, famed as the Garden of England, lies Ashford Designer Outlet – a visitor attraction in its own right. Designed by Lord Richard Rogers, the centre attracts fashion conscious visitors from London, South East England and Europe, who enjoy 80 stores offering reductions of up to 60% on premium and designer brands including Fred Perry, Lacoste, Nike, Ted Baker and Tommy Hilfiger.

Located within walking distance from Ashford International station, just 37 minutes from central London by high-speed train and minutes from Junction 10 of the M20, visitors from the UK and Europe can satisfy their passion for fashion with ease. The centre is also a perfect stop-off point for anyone driving to or from the cross-channel ferry port at Dover. Set beneath an awe-inspiring structure, the centre offers a range of restaurants and cafes and a children’s play area, making it the perfect shopping location for the whole family.
