History

The discovery of Chalybeate Spring, in 1606 by Dudley Lord North, marked the beginning of Tunbridge Wells, and led to the town becoming a popular spa resort in Georgian times. A colonnaded walkway was soon built; later becoming known as The Pantiles. Its charm and eloquence remain to this day.

During the Victorian era the town became a very desirable place for aristocratic and royal visitors, including Queen Victoria. In 1909 her son, King Edward VII, officially recognised its popularity by granting the town its “Royal” prefix, and it became known as Royal Tunbridge Wells.
