Tunbridge Wells Travel Guide
One of southeast England’s most desirable places to live in Tunbridge Wells oozes a
well-practised air of relaxed gentility. A visit to “A Day
at the Wells” on the colonnaded Pantilles
outlines the towns laid back history over the last 400 years.
Today the town has developed unhurriedness into near art form with a plethora of coffee
houses, open air cafes, antique, book and trendy clothes shops dotted around the town
centre. Unsurprisingly the town has plenty of good places to eat and drink
including a number of notable restaurants
and plenty of ‘olde worlde’ pubs.
Roughly midway between London and Brighton Royal Tunbridge Wells, to give it the title
bestowed on the town by King Edward theVIII in1909, is set amidst the gentle
rolling downs and wooded hills of the Weald of Kent.
For the visitor the area holds a wealth of interest. Groombridge Place with its Enchanted
Forest is a popular family destination especially when reached via the Spa Valley Railway. Lamberhurst
Vineyard, one of England’s largest is one of several in the area open to
the public. Nearby Hever Castle
with its outstanding gardens was the home of Anne Boleyn, second wife of Henry
VIII and mother of Elizabeth the First.
