Royal Tunbridge Wells online: information and bookings

Ever since the discovery of the Chalybeate Spring over 400 years ago by a young aristocrat, Dudley Lord North, visitors have been coming to Royal Tunbridge Wells. Once a magnet for the gentry and members of the Georgian Royal family, the elegance and atmosphere of this bygone era still remain in Royal Tunbridge Wells today.

The Pantiles, the famous colonnaded walkway, where the aristocracy once promenaded, is now home to a wonderful selection of high quality boutiques, small specialist shops, bars and cafés. Visitors still come to admire the fine architecture, stroll along the Pantiles and experience this charming historic town.

Shopping is a major attraction of Royal Tunbridge Wells. With a large selection of niche designer shops in the town, a wide range of high street names, Royal Victoria Palace – a modern undercover shopping centre with over 100 retail names, and an exceptional selection of small, independent shops, particularly in the old High Street, make Royal Tunbridge Wells a shopper’s delight.

Tunbridge Wells Museum and Art Gallery houses the world’s most extensive collection of Tunbridge ware, as well as fascinating collections of costumes, toys and local history.

Parks, woods and commons can be found both in and around the town centre, including Dunloran Park and Calverley Grounds. Royal Tunbridge Wells lies in some of the most rural and picturesque countryside in the South East. Oast houses, rolling green hills, orchards and hop gardens all feature prominently in this part of the Garden of England. Peace and quiet and the country life – quaint country pubs, pretty Kent villages and leafy country lanes – are all par for the course.

This corner of Kent is a paradise for history, and expecially garden lovers. Hever Castle, Penshurst Place, Sissinghurst Castle Garden, Groombridge Place Gardens, Scotney Castle Gardens and Chartwell, to name a few, are all within easy reach, as well as a wonderful selection of smaller lesser known gardens, just as beautiful as their larger, more famous counterparts.

All this, together with a range of high quality B&B, hotel and self-catering accommodation in and around the town, make Royal Tunbridge Wells the ideal destination for a relaxing short break.
