Royal Star Arcade Maidstone



The Royal Star Arcade stands on the site of the old Royal Star Hotel, in Maidstone High Street. Fortunately the Arcade retains some of the original features and has a light and airy feel to it as you stroll through. It has been a shopping centre since 1989, a far cry from when it was a coaching inn that was a popular resting point fro travellers making the 9 hour journey from London to Folkestone. The building received the 'Royal' seal of approval in the 19th century after a young Queen Victoria visited the Hotel. Another historical fact worth mentioning about the Royal Star Arcade is that the original 'Disraeli' balcony has been re-installed as this was where the ambitius Benjamin Disraeli made his Parliament acceptance speech after he was elected MP for Maidstone.

The Royal Star Arcade offer a mix of independent and exclusive retail outlets set in a beautiful building. Independent retailers have always traded in the Royal Star and this is what attracts people through the doors. The coffee shop on the first floor is the perfect place to 'people watch' as they peruse in the well dressed and enticing shop windows. The range of shops offers more than just choice, there is a personal atmosphere that is sure to make you want to return. The Arcade hosts retails from fashion to jewellery, bridal wear to gifts, health and beauty to art and interior decor and when all that has been explored, why not relax in the coffee shop.

The Arcade hosts numerous events througout the year that make the centre come even more alive. During these events other retailer are invited in to the centre to showcase their sometimes unique and quirky products. This is a great opportunity for new retailers to feel what it is like to be part of a community shopping centre. 2008 saw the Arcade host a Wedding fair with Wedding Photographers, Cake makers and the Bridal Shops showcase their professional services.
