Technology moves on at such a rate that it’s hard to keep up with the latest advance, or find practical, helpful advice for a problem which doesn’t seem to appear on the FAQ pages.
Perhaps you are flummoxed by different mobile phone offers and want to discuss what fits in best with your lifestyle, or you need advice on whether to get your aging laptop repaired or trade up for a new one.
Here at County Square Ashford we’ve got all bases covered. If you’re looking for a mobile network provider, pop into Vodafone, EE or 3 to find out more. Dropped your mobile in the bath? Perhaps it was time for a new one anyway. Carphone Warehouse can give you all the help you need to find the perfect replacement. There’s also a Sky kiosk for all your broadband and TV needs.
Top Gift Mobile Phone Accessories is the place to head for when you want to buy products to personalise your phone, and the helpful team is just as happy to find accessories for your much-loved old mobile as for a brand new one. They can also offer product advice and on-site services such as data transfer and phone set-up.

We are easily accessible by rail, within easy reach of the railway stations as well as being right next to the bus station and any trip to Folkestone and the Centre is a delight and a great day out for all the family.

Parking is easy, with a three storey car park, and our covered mall and an open air square, all make for an attractive and bright, accessible shopping haven.

Monday to Saturday from 9am to 6pm (with Asda opening earlier and closing later) and on Sundays we open from 10am to 4pm, but it is always best to check your favourite store for their opening times.

Sensory Shopping Day
On the last Sunday of every month stores at Bouverie Place will either turn their in-store music off or have it at a very low level.
Additionally, for those shoppers who suffer from light sensitivity, the lights in the Centre will also be dimmed to a level that is both practical and safe.
“We have had a very positive response from our shoppers to the Sensory Sundays and it is our intention to continue having these ‘quiet days’ on the last Sunday of every month,” says Paul Stone, Manager of the Bouverie Place Shopping Centre.
“When noise does not bother you, it is difficult to appreciate how uncomfortable and distressing the regular hustle and bustle of every day life can have on some people. We hope that, for at least one day a month, shoppers who suffer from conditions such as Perception Disorder, Hyperacusis, Autism, Bell’s Palsy and other conditions that can cause sound sensitivity can enjoy a shopping trip in relative peace and quiet,” continues Paul. “Many of our stores are also doing even more to support these days by having dedicated staff and tills to assist our customers affected by any of the conditions we are catering for. We would also welcome any comments on other ways we can reduce unnecessary noise or light pollution on these days.”
Sensory Shopping Day takes place from 2pm-4pm on the last Sunday of every month.
