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.
