Shop 'til you drop in Dover

Shopping in Dover and the surrounding area is easy and there are so many options to choose from!!!!  If you’re looking for somewhere to enjoy quality ‘retail therapy’ or to take ‘time out’ either on your own or with friends for perhaps a ‘girlie weekend’ then Dover, Kent is the place to base yourself.



Shopping in Dover itself is easy and relaxed with the main shopping area being on the level and part being pedestrianised. Some of the larger national outlets are represented (Marks & Spencer, Boots etc.) and a wide diversity of smaller shops offer everything from fashion, art, crafts and quality gifts to books and marine supplies – all are interspersed with banks, pubs, restaurants, cafes and tea rooms making shopping in Dover itself an altogether pleasant and enjoyable if ‘small scale ’experience however, for the more determined shopper close by we have  …


Dover town center shops generally open 9.00 to 5.30 Monday to Saturday. Marks & Spencer opens at 8.30 on Friday & Saturday. The town center supermarkets (Morrison’s, Asda, Co-Op) open on Sundays 10 am to 4 pm – however if you’re looking to stock up prior to your holiday or coming to the UK expressly to stock up on all those ‘British’ essentials such as Marmite, Bisto, Marmalade, bacon and sausages then the Whitfield Retail Park, located just 3 miles away with its 24 hour Tesco Superstore is the place to go (store & petrol station open 24 hours). Homebase and B&Q DIY stores (with Plant and Garden Departments), Car Sales, Plumbing Specialists, Builders Yards are also located in the vicinity.
We invite you to come and stay and enjoy shopping in and around Dover UK – you could also use Dover ferry crossings to pop over to France for the day to visit Calais, Dunkirk – visit for great ferry rates and currency exchange.
