Explore Tunbridge Wells

Explore beyond the norm and find out what makes Tunbridge Wells one of the most desirable places to be.

Culture abounds as a myriad of things to do, see and take part in are here. There is more to Tunbridge Wells than shopping!

Take time out to truly explore the area and you will find out just how relaxing this place is. 

With the achingly beautiful countryside and the rich heritage of the Garden of England you will be fascinated by what is on offer.

Rolling fields, orchards, woodlands, country lanes, picturesque villages and enchanting Wealden towns have inspired artists and writers alike and you too will be persuaded to linger longer!

Much of the area is in the High Weald, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and an attraction in itself along with the historic houses and gardens, castles and other places of interest.

Visit at anytime of year

Spring with its greenery and delicate pink and white blossom of the cherry and apple trees, and the intense blue of the bluebells or Autumn with its spectacular display of vibrant red and gold colours, are the most colourful.

Winter too holds an ephemeral quality with rolling low mists around spectral trees.

Of course Tunbridge Wells at Christmas is magical - twinkling lights, ice skating, warming up with delicious hot chocolate or mulled wine and the warming aroma of cinnamon in the air…..

Whether you stay for a day or a week there is always something to discover to make your visit a memorable one.
