Coach holidays with Alfa Travel

Royal Kent

Resort - Tunbridge Wells


The genteel former spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells is renowned for its shopping which offers a truly unique experience. The lower end of town includes the historic Pantiles district which is full of gorgeous independent and specialist shops. In the summer it is still possible to sample the cool Chalybeate Spring water served by a costumed dipper, after all it is these spring waters that give the town its name.
