Tunbridge Wells

Tunbridge Wells is a large town and borough in west Kent, about 40 miles south-east of central London. The town is close to the border of the county of East Sussex. It is situated at the northern edge of the High Weald, the sandstone geology of which is exemplified by the rock formations at the Wellington Rocks and High Rocks.

Visit the pretty colonnaded walkway known as the Pantiles, where you will find a variety of small specialist shops, open air cafes, restaurants and bars. Once the playground of the gentry and royalty, the Pantiles remains a pleasant place to browse, shop, eat and drink.

In contrast to the bustling spa town, the Seven Wonders of the Weald are unique places to visit. Discover forests, vineyards, gardens, The Spa Railway and museums. The medieval towns and villages of Cranbrook, Goudhurst, Hawkhurst, Brenchley and Lamberhurst make pleasant stopping points to savour the history of hop-picking and brewing ale of beer.
