Lets be honest Dartford is not the most picturesque of towns, it's more famous for its tunnel than upmarket ambience. However Central Park definitely punches above it weight as far as the rest of area is concerned and is a great place to spend time....More

Absolutely brilliant. Had a great evening with good friends. Dartford council did Dartford proud by putting on an open air cinema evening at no cost to viewers. Well organised and well staffed. Brilliant
