Tonbridge even has its own theatre, The Oast Theatre inside the 19th Century Kentish oast house, with 10 productions every year!
There are a variety of wonderful houses and gardens to visit, including the National Trust properties such as Ightham Mote (15 minutes' drive), Hever Castle and Scotney Castle (20 minutes drive), both moated castles, Knowle, near Sevenoaks and Chartwell, the home of Winston Churchill, near Westerham.

A visit to Royal Tunbridge Wells is a must. It's a very attractive town with great shopping facilities. It was established as a spa town in Georgian times and was very popular under Richard (Beau) Nash when the Pantiles and its Chalybeate Spring attracted visitors from all over Europe who wanted to try the waters. Nowadays, it is a pleasant place to wander, admire the architecture and visit its antique shops and cafes. Great for those who love shopping too!
