Royal Tunbridge Wells is an elegant Georgian spa-town set in the heart of the beautiful Kent countryside in the south-eastern corner of England. Founded in 1606 with the discovery of the Chalybeate Spring, the town became a fashionable and popular resort for the well to do throughout the 18th and 19th centuries.


Royal Tunbridge Wells was granted its ‘royal’ prefix by Edward VII in 1909, and its reputation as a charming and attractive town has continued on to the present day. As well as the town itself, the picturesque surrounding Kent countryside is full of castles, stately homes, gardens and many other National Trust places of historic interest and has a great deal to offer any visitor to the area.
