The Pentagon Shopping Centre (known locally as 'The Pentagon') is a shopping centre in Chatham in Kent. The centre's name derives from the fact that its main courtyard is five-sided. The shopping centre is located next to the Waterfront bus station which replaces the Pentagon bus station, which 80% of services use. The shopping centre contains over 70 shops and 7 leisure facilities, many high street names in fashion, homeware and food stores. There are also cafes, restaurants and a bowling alley. As is common with some other 1970's era town centre shopping centres, The Pentagon does not feature a food court or any dedicated dining area. Instead, there are various food outlets scattered throughout the centre. Built as part of the redevelopment of Chatham town centre in the 1970s, the Pentagon also features the high rise Mountbatten House office block, which has controversially stood empty or part-used for most of its history. The Pentagon, Mountbatten House and the Brook multi-storey carpark are built in a distinctive orange-red brick with grey concrete.

  • Pentagon Court and the main shopping strip sit side by side. If your after a small walk the water's edge is a stone's throw away. What lacks in high class polish has plentiful character. Take your time and enjoy the scenery. Don't forget if you get sore feet sit back and relax on the fairly priced massage chairs.
  • I can't believe I have to pay for parking at such a poor shopping mall. You'd think they'd be grateful for customers. Once Debenham goes they'll be tumbleweed and pounds shops aplenty. It's a shame as Chatham needs a vibrant centre, not a pale reflection of a once proud High street
