Only a 30 minute train ride from London, and once royalty preferred holiday spot, the historic spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells has welcomed visitors for over 400 years. Browse among the chic independent shops of the colonnaded Pantiles and the High Street, with buzzy cafes, music and one-of-a-kind shops or plan a night out, going to the Assembly Hall Theatre, just a few minutes’ walk from the restaurant.

Royal Tunbridge Wells lies in the heart of the beautiful High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the area is well-known for its world-famous gardens, such as Penhurst Place Gardens, considered one of the most beautiful in England, and popular Dunorlan Park, ideal for romantic strolls and picnics in spring and summer. Don’t miss fairy-tale moated castles and mellow country manors;  just 15 minutes’ drive from the town you can find the romantic moat-ringed Scotney Castle or the enchanting Sissinghurst Castle and Gardens, an inspiration to gardeners world-wide.
