Whitefriars is very conveniently located to the centre of Canterbury. It has a wide array of shops in a large open centre. They offer everything you could possibly need, from food to clothing and household items. It is a great break from the miles of souvenir shops in Canterbury centre.

It's always so busy, students everywhere making it really hard to look round, if like me you dont like crowds.(i must avoid the college/uni towns ;-)) There are some ok shops, as you walk further down past the cathedral you can find quaint little knick knacks shops, these are always a joy to look round. The bus garage is situated... More

Living nearby i visit often, always busy, and as much as the town has alot of visitors, sometimes for a local its just too much! Its a struggle at times to just go in one shop let alone several when its jam packed with foreign tourists, especially teens! The town and shopping centre is lovely and alot to find, but... More

Whitefriars is the place to shop in Canterbury!!! All major high street brands and retailers are here, including H&M, Topman/Topshop, Primark, River Island....... The shopping centre itself is also very nice, mixing modernity and old!

I came here to do some Christmas shopping as there are a lot of good shops and a huge selection of restaurants to chose from. Canterbury is one of the few towns left now that still has little nick nacky shops as well as the usual chain stores we see everywhere. A very pretty town to walk around with plenty... More
