The Marlowe Arcade

The Marlowe Arcade is named after the theatre which stood on this site. The theatre was moved to the Odeon Cinema at the west end of the City and this set of shops were built. The passage way leads to St. Margaret's Street.


Debenhams, Guildhall St, Canterbury

This large department store located in the heart of the city carries predominantly European brand names for both women and men. The store is divided into different buildings scattered along the street. Shoppers can also find stores with excellent selections of men's wear, home appliances, and house wares. There is even a quaint coffee shop inside where shoppers can rest their feet.


Canterbury Cathedral shop

Canterbury Cathedral shop stocks, as much as possible, art, crafts and articles locally made, and Fair Trade products are also available, for example a popular Noah's Ark made in Sri Lanka. All profits go back to the Cathedral, and much of the stock is exclusive to the shop. There are reproductions of sculpted figures and animals from the Cathedral building - the cat on the gate is especially popular. As well as the more directly ecclesiastical guides and books, there is a wide selection of Emma Bridgewater pottery, cards, T-shirts and ties, and stained glass of different sizes. Poole Pottery is sold, and prints by David Arbus and John Doyle RA, scented candles and CDs of the Cathedral Choir and others. There is a wide selection of Kent produce, preserves, wine and Cathedral Ale.


Methven's Booksellers

This popular, two-story bookstore is full of books on every subject imaginable. The staff is especially helpful should you get lost in the sea of literature. A large number of visiting authors and artists are invited to the store for customers to meet.
