Tunbridge Wells Kent

Officially Royal Tunbridge Wells, this large historic spa town has a wealth of things to offer. In fact it has been a popular tourist destination since Georgian times when its The Chalybeate Spring and The Pantiles enticed visitors. It’s also the home of 5 metre high steel Milennium Clock designed by local sculptor Jon Mills, numerous parks, theatres and more.

The Pantiles is a must-see and a pleasant place to spend a morning or afternoon with its pedestrianised area and many things to do – from traditional English pubs, specialist shops, cafes and events centred around the bandstand (worth checking in advance).

For shopaholics Tunbridge Wells won’t disappoint either, and the stroll from The Pantiles up the old High Street to the Royal Victoria Place shopping centre is a nice walk and a good way to see the town. The area is buzzing in the evening too and there are plenty of resturants, pubs and bars to entertain.
