Travel to Tunbridge Wells
Royal Tunbridge Wells
(shortened to Tunbridge Wells) is a quaint but large town located about 40 miles south-east of central London
. If you’re planning a trip to the capital but fancy exploring some of the surrounding towns and cities, Kent is the perfect place to start. Plus, if you book a cheap ride through Liftshare, you’ll have more cash to spend on fun stuff!
Scenery and shopping
Tunbridge Wells is a truly scenic town. In fact, thanks to the orchards and hop gardens that surround it, the county of Kent is known as ‘The Garden of England’. Tunbridge Wells actually lies at the heart of the High Weald – think rolling hills, romantic meadows, wild heaths and woodland walks that have barely changed since medieval times.
Love shopping? You’re in luck. The picturesque town centre is home to all your high street favourites, so you can spend hours indulging in some retail therapy. If you prefer to explore shops that are a little more unique, don’t miss the Pantiles
. This quaint part of town is home to an array of independent retailers and eateries, who have a clear passion for keeping the local community alive.
Cheap travel to London
The UK’s equivalent to the big apple awaits you – stop by Covent Garden for your fix of high-end boutiques, head to Shoreditch
for bottomless vintage emporiums, or visit Camden Market
for an electric atmosphere. Don’t forget the classic sights too; from the Houses of Parliament to Buckingham Palace.
If you’d like to see all these attractions without having to dwell in the city’s less attractive hustle and bustle, consider staying in Tunbridge Wells. If you book yourself a cheap car share, it’s still easy to make the commute, and you can see a side to the south that many who venture down there tend to miss out on.
