Tonbridge is a medieval market town in the heart of the Kent countryside, best known for its 11th century castle and its links with Jane Austen.
It sits on the river Medway which hosts the annual Dragon Boat Race and where visitors can take scenic walks, have a coffee with a view or take a boat trip.
Tonbridge has a lively high street hosting many events and including many independent shops and eateries.
In recent years it has become home to pop-ups and a growing art scene. We have everything from a butchers to great little boutiques, gift shops and a beer cafe.
There is also a thriving monthly award winning farmer's market. A great place to buy well sourced food and goods from people who care.
There are plenty of music events. From the annual music festival in the grounds of the castle to concerts by internationally acclaimed musicians arranged by the Tonbridge Music Club.
