The local area guide to living in Tunbridge Wells

Royal Tunbridge Wells has got something of a reputation as the quintessential Middle England town. A large, affluent town in Western Kent, it had its real heyday as a spa town in Georgian times when it was a booming tourist attraction. This popularity waned after the advent of sea bathing, but the town still remains an attractive destination for visitors and it derives some 30% of its income from the tourism industry. The town is now very popular with commuters and families, as it is in within easy reach of Tonbridge, Sevenoaks and London.

Information about the local residents

The town has around 115,000 residents and isn’t a very ethnically diverse place, with around 95% of the population being white. The average age of people living in Tunbridge Wells is 40 and 20% of people work in professional positions. There is a low unemployment rate in the area: just 3% compared to the England average of 4.4%. The area itself is very affluent, with the average earnings of Tunbridge and Malling topping the list of Kent earnings, and being significantly over the United Kingdom’s average wage.

The average property price in Tunbridge Wells was just over £410,000, which was an increase of 15% from the previous year.

Nearby schools

As you would expect of such a middle class, Middle England town, Tunbridge Wells has an excellent selection of schools, most of which are rated as good or outstanding by Ofsted. Primary schools rated as outstanding are St James C Of E School, Langton Green Primary and Claremont Primary.

There is also a great choice of secondary schools. Tunbridge Wells Girl’s Grammar School is rated as outstanding, as is The Skinner’s School, which is a boys’ only establishment.

Getting around

Tunbridge Wells sits at the centre of a series of roads, making it an easy place to get to. The primary ones are the A26, which runs from Newhaven to Maidstone, the A264, which runs from Pembury to West Sussex, and the A267, which goes from Hailsham to Tunbridge Wells. There is also a great bus service, which runs throughout the town and to local areas, as well as further afield to Maidstone and Bromley.

Tunbridge Wells is blessed with two railway stations. The main station, located in the centre of town, runs services to Hastings and Charing Cross, and High Brooms, which is in the north of town, runs trains to local destinations, as well as larger ones such as Charing Cross.

Local shops

As you would expect from a popular tourist destination, Tunbridge Wells is excellent for shopping, with The Pantiles being one of the town’s most famous landmarks. Here you will find a great selection of shops, galleries and cafes. As well as the usual well-known high street names, there are also lots of independent shops with beautiful Victorian shop fronts around the area of the old high street, Vale Road and Chapel Place. If you like all your shops to be located in one place, visit The Royal Victoria Shopping Centre, which has over 90 shops that mix the high street with smaller boutiques and big brand department stores such as M&S and BHS.

As well as shopping, there is plenty more to keep people entertained. There is an impressive museum, an urban art gallery that specialises in street art, a large theatre, an arts centre and a large music venue called The Forum, which hosts a huge variety of artists. There is also The Royal Tunbridge Wells Dance Festival, which attracts performers and audiences from all over the world.
