Travelling around Tunbridge Wells

With an abundance of green spaces and pretty shopping centres and less than an hour’s commute to London, it’s easy to see why the Royal Town of Tunbridge Wells is a popular commuter town. With smart boutiques and stylish restaurants dotted along the high street, this Kentish spa town is certainly worth a visit.

If you’re thinking of popping down (or you’ve just moved here and are looking for things to do) then there’s plenty to see. There are a selection of theatres, galleries and cinemas for culture vultures, plenty of parkland and a boating lake for those who love the great outdoors, plus a bustling shopping area too.

Arriva buses are in operation across the town to take people to Maidstone, Sevenoaks and more.

Park in Tunbridge Wells

Tunbridge Wells offers Kentish town and country at its best. Just an hour from London, this historic Royal spa town has been attracting visitors for centuries.

The white weatherboarded Pantiles welcomed the gentry who came for the famed Chalybeate spring waters. Today, the Pantiles is still a must-visit part of town, with buzzing cafes, bars, music and one-of-a-kind shops.

Protected landscapes can be found at Bedgebury Pinetum, home to 12,000 tree specimens. Fairy-tale moated castles and mellow country manors tell the stories of England’s past from the Normans and Tudors to the present day, including Groombridge Place, where Arthur Conan Doyle created the mysteries of Sherlock Holmes.
