Royal Tunbridge Wells


The handsome spa town of ROYAL TUNBRIDGE WELLS was established after a bubbling spring discovered here in 1606 was claimed to have curative properties, and reached its height of popularity during the Regency period when such restorative cures were in vogue. It remains an elegant place, and with plenty of excellent places to stay and eat it’s a good base for day-trips into the Weald.
