Travelling around Tenterden

Are you thinking about visiting Tenterden? Perhaps you already live in this great town but need to get around without the hassle of parking or the expense of petrol? At Arriva we know travel and we know Tenterden, so take a few moments and read through our carefully created guide to attractions and travelling in this great town.


Tenterden has every reason to declare itself 'The Jewel of the Weald'. Its fine High Street must rank amongst the most attractive in the Country with historic houses, shops, restaurants and pubs separated from the carriageway by wide expanses of tree-lined grass verges.  

William Caxton, who in 1477 printed the first English book, was said to have been born here. Keeping guard over the town is the pinnacled tower of St Mildreds Church from where once the signal beacon warned of the approach of the Spanish Armada, and where later Lord Nelson's daughter, Horatia was the wife of the vicar.  

However Tenterden is also a town for the 21st century with modern amenities, varied and interesting shopping, great places to stay, fascinating museums and visitor attractions, and events for all the family
