About Tunbridge Wells and the surrounding area:
Royal Tunbridge Wells is famous for its water and is a very elegant town with independant shops, mixed in with large well known chains. With a host of delicious restaurants that cater for all tastes and the famous ‘The Pantiles’, a visit to the local farmers market on every 1st and 3rd weekend of each month is a must.
Groombridge Place is also a great place to discover with Children as it’s got beautiful award-winning gardens, a forest the houses giant swings, zip wires, Crusoe’s World, Falconry displays, Working Horse Trust, and much more. Jane Austen’s ‘Pride and Prejudice’ was filmed at Groombridge Place, including other literary connections. Groombridge Place also has a interesting association with Chafford House from the 18th century.
The Pantiles was built as a Georgian Spa designed for tired Londoners, The Pantiles has a rich history of providing relaxation and refreshment for the tired and hungry. This continues today, serving local visitors, Londoners and those from further afield – with a wide choice of cafes, pubs, bars and restaurants catering for all tastes. The Pantiles hosts their own farmers’ market every 1st and 3rd weekend of the month and its unique setting offers a sheltered, pedestrianised area perfect for outdoor dining and drinking, providing a European-style café culture atmosphere.
Penshurst Place and Gardens. Described as ‘the grandest and most perfectly preserved example of a fortified manor house in all England’, the Sidney family home of Penshurst Place has been the place for poetic inspiration and lavish Royal hospitality for over 650 years. The house at Penshurst showcases a marvellous mix of paintings, tapestries and furniture from the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries, with a unique medieval Baron’s Hall and decadent staterooms on show. The jewel in the crown is the 11 acres of Elizabethan walled gardens; stunning displays divided by a mile of yew hedges into ‘rooms’; each garden is planted to give a succession of colour as the seasons change.
Hever Castle is a few miles away by car which was once the childhood home of Anne Boleyn, second wife of Henry VIII and Mother of Elizabeth I and formed the unlikely backdrop to a sequence of tumultuous events that changed the course of Britain’s history, monarchy and religion.
