Whatever the reason for moving to Tunbridge Wells or wherever you’re moving from, you’re probably curious as to what your new town has in store for you. If you're wondering what life is like in a Royal Spa town then read on to find out more...
Being the only spa town in the South East of England, the answer to that question is, simply, lots. Steeped in rich history, this is a town that embraces the old with the new – beautiful architecture and original buildings keep the old spirit of the town alive, while the vibrant, fast-paced culture paves the way for a thoroughly modern lifestyle.
Away from the main high street, which is home to the Royal Victoria Place shopping centre, is the town’s most famous attraction, The Pantiles (http://www.thepantilesonline.co.uk/). Here you’ll find quirky shops and extravagant boutiques of all shapes and sizes. Whether you’re after clothes, home wares, jewellery, art work or antiques, you’ll find it hard to leave The Pantiles empty handed. Twice a month you’ll also find the local farmers market held here, which is a great place to stock up on fresh, local produce.
When it comes to eating out, again, there is a vast amount of choice in Tunbridge Wells. Whatever your taste or budget there are plenty of restaurants, cafes, bars, delis and coffee shops that are well worth a visit. All are easily accessible and are within walking distance of the shops if you’re spending a day out and about, or the train station/taxi ranks if you’re making a night of it.
Another added bonus of moving to Tunbridge Wells is its excellent commuter links. With the main railway station situated in the heart of the town, you’re well connected to all the surrounding areas and are only 30 miles from London.
Aside from all the shopping and eating, there are plenty of other things to engage in around the town. Events are held here all year round, from the ‘spring gardens’ and ‘summer sights and sounds’ to the annual Christmas festivities (http://www.tunbridgewellsevents.co.uk).
Of course, moving to Tunbridge Wells also opens you up to the possibility of exploring all of the quaint and quirky surrounding towns and villages – with such close proximity to Cranbrook and some of the other Wealden Villages, there are plenty of churches, gardens, castles, local markets and stately homes on offer.
