You’ll find Swanley’s retail action in Swanley Square shopping centre, an easy walk from the train station and close to Swanley recreation ground. It’s an open-air pedestrianised area with a row of independent shops, as well as some practical, big-name brands.

The best day of the week to visit is Wednesdays, when a bustling general market takes over the town centre. Between them, the friendly traders sell everything from clothes, kitchen equipment, sweets and local produce to cuddly toys, but the atmosphere alone makes a trip to the market well worth it.
