Escorted Rail Tours to Royal Tunbridge Wells
Surrounded by beautiful Kent countryside
Surrounded by the glorious countryside of 'the garden of England', charming Royal Tunbridge Wells is one of Kent's best-loved towns. Its history dates back to 1606, when the discovery of a spring in the area led to the town's development as a spa retreat. Following a visit from Charles I's wife Queen Henrietta Maria in 1630, the spa's popularity soared, and by the 18th century the Georgians made Tunbridge Wells the place to see and be seen. Owing to the continued popularity amongst the Royal family since the spa's discovery, in 1909 Edward VII granted the town its 'Royal' status.
