Royal Victoria Place

Royal Victoria Place (affectionately known as RVP) is an award-winning shopping centre with over 50 well-known High Street brand names all under one roof.

The main entrance is situated overlooking Fiveways near the Millennium Clock at the 'top' of the town of Royal Tunbridge Wells. 

Small businesses also sell their wares at little stalls, like flowers, jewellery and scarves. 

Once you are in the centre you will be mesmerised by the fragrant soap shop, the flowers, the cafés and the fresh pretzels!

There are frequent events for the family to enjoy making it a good rainy day option.  Recently there was an exhibition of photographs of the Titanic as well as original artefacts.

Fashion shows are fun; artworks hang on the walls and there is wifi available in some of the cafés.
