Pantiles - Kent Tourism Alliance

A beautiful spa town officially known as Royal Tunbridge Wells, this charming town owes its fame to the medicinal chalybeate spring discovered by a nobleman in 1606.

Over the years it became increasingly popular with the aristocracy and came to rival both Brighton and Bath. Its oldest surviving street is the arcaded Pantiles, with its pretty shops, restaurants and inns, which dates from 1700. King Edward VII recognised the value of the town in 1909 by granting it ‘royal’ status.
