LOCATIONOne of the real highlights of this property is its fabulous location. Situated in the heart of the vibrant spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells, there are restaurants, cafes, shops and beautiful parks on the doorstep. Yet once you are inside the apartment, its charming outlook over the pedestrian lane below makes it an enviably peaceful oasis. The mainline station is just a 5 minute walk away, as is the historic Pantiles with its elegant colonnaded walkway believed by many to be the most pleasant place in Tunbridge Wells to browse, shop, eat, drink and stroll. Further shopping opportunities are available at Royal Victoria Place and the award-winning Bluewater Shopping Centre is under 30 miles distant. The mainline station offers a fast and frequent service to Central London and if you want to escape to the coast, then the lovely seaside towns are easily accessible by car or public transport.
DIRECTIONSFrom our offices on The Pantiles, turn right onto Linden Park Road and then right again onto London Road. Go straight ahead at the mini-roundabout, continuing along London Road until you reach the next roundabout. Take the first exit and Kentish Mansions can be seen on your right hand side, next to Maynards, the interior designer shop.
