How do I get to the Dartford hydroponics shop?
Since the Dartford hydroponics shop in Invicta Rd closed down (it is now a rather lovely little housing estate), the Dartford hydroponics shop can now be found northwest of Dartford railway station on Burnham Rd. Most customers at the Dartford hydroponics shop find this is a much more convenient location as the old Dartford hydroponics shop was hardly in Dartford at all, being a good couple of miles east of the town up a steep hill and then down a long residential road that was often hard to negotiate due to the number of parked cars.
The current Dartford hydroponics shop – the only hydroponics shop in Dartford, incidentally – is in an easily-located industrial yard next to the Shell petrol garage on Burnham Rd. The Dartford hydroponics shop shares the yard with Constant Fibreglass, Lawson Paints and Safe Hones SE Ltd – you will see signs for these businesses from outside as you pass. Enter the yard where you can see these signs and the Dartford hydroponics shop is the second unit on your left. There is area for customer parking right outside the front door, but if this is occupied park in any parking space you can find in the yard. If you find yourself parked far away from the shop, the Dartford hydroponics shop staff will be happy to carry your purchases to your vehicle.
If you are coming to the Dartford hydroponics shop by rail, depart Dartford station and turn right. Walk past the taxi rank next to the roundabout, continue past the entrance to the station car park and continue along station approach until you see a curry take-away to your right. Just past this, turn right and you will find a set of steps. Descend these steps and you will be on Hythe St. Cross the road with care immediately in front of the steps and turn right. Keep walking and turn left at the roundabout onto Victoria Rd. Cross the road keep walking up Victoria Rd…and keep walking. Victoria Rd becomes Burnham Rd after five minutes or so of walking, and soon enough you will cross Lawson Rd. After this is a Shell petrol station, and immediately after the petrol station is the yard where you will find the Dartford hydroponics shop. The walk from the station to the shop will take approximately fifteen minutes.
If you want to come to the Dartford hydroponics shop by bus, unfortunately there is no bus service along Burnham Rd. Take a bus to Dartford station and follow the directions for travel by foot from there.
