Tunbridge Wells Towns & Villages
Lying in the unspoilt beauty of the Weald countryside, many small towns and villages still retain the essence of the English countryside with a long history of hop-picking and brewing ale or beer.
Information on walks can be found on the Walking page.
The medieval market town of Cranbrook and picturesque villages such as Goudhurst, Hawkhurst, Brenchley, Benenden, Horsmonden, Matfield, Paddock Wood, Rusthall, Sandhurst, Sissinghurst, Southborough, Speldhurst and Lamberhurst, make pleasant stopping points on a tour of the Weald in West Kent.
Wondering what 'hurst' means at the end of most of these town names?
'Hurst' is anglo-saxon for a wooded hill, and there is still plenty of woodland around to explore.
The immediate environs of the town of Royal Tunbridge Wells are host to a handful of interesting and lively parishes too, with their own tight knit communities.
They have their own heritage and history to explore along with locally-owned boutiques and eateries.
We have put together an idea for a scenic driving tour for you to follow if you wish.
Or you can plan your own tour of the Tunbridge Wells area using the "My Itinerary" tool at the top of all the web pages.
