High Street

Dartford High Street is shopping central and the home to many big-name shops including Primark, New Look, Boots, Superdrug, Sainsburys and also some lovely independent shops which contribute to the town's thriving community.

Residents of Dartford are treated to a traditional weekly market which takes place every Thursday and Saturday, with the additional Dartford Farmers' Market also in town on every third Friday of the month.

Great transport links within the town centre include the train station and Fastrack buses, meaning the high street is easily accessible for those looking to go shopping, visit the park or go for a night out on the town.

There are really exciting plans for the future of the high street, discover more here.

Dartford High Street Events

Remembrance Service

Dartford's Remembrance Service is a heart-warming community event hosted by Dartford Council in Central Park every year on Remembrance Sunday.

From veterans to local scouts' groups, the ceremony brings together the people of Dartford to remember those who sacrificed their lives, and those who continue to do so.

Christmas Lights Switch On

The big Christmas Light Switch On is a wonderful community event held on the high street outside the Bull & Vic pub.

Last year saw the fabulous pantomime stars from the Orchard Theatre entertaining the crowds, including Louie Spence, Michelle Collins, Jayne Weisener and Phil Butler.

It was a great afternoon and we hope you can join us this year!
