At the Tunbridge Wells Tourist Information Centre (TIC), we are here to welcome you, inspire you and help you make the most of your time in this lovely part of the country. So, here is a little bit of information about us!
We have been providing an information service to visitors for more than 25 years, and during this time, the TIC has had several homes in Royal Tunbridge Wells, including the Old Fish Market (which you will find in the middle of the Pantiles and is now the Champagne and Seafood Bar). We have a lot of visitors to the TIC with more than 25,000 every year.
The Tourist Information Centre is now located in the Corn Exchange building in the Pantiles. We have recently moved to a lovely bright office to the front of the building making us very easy for visitors to find.
Our team is always ready with practical and specialist information
In the TIC you will meet our friendly and knowledgeable advisers who will have many ideas to share with you about how to fill your days, making sure that you do not miss any opportunities while you are here. We also have an extensive range of maps, brochures and leaflets that you can pick up at the start of your visit, and peruse at your leisure. These are from attractions right across the South East.
We can help you with accommodation options, accessibility advice and how to get about the area by car, bike or by public transport (with a full range of bus timetables available!). We can advise on parking across the borough from Benenden to Speldhurst and inbetween to be near to your destination.
We would encourage you to take the time to come down and see us at the start of your stay and find out what Tunbridge Wells and the surrounding area has to offer.
Guided Walks and School Trips
Guided Walks, led by trained Blue Badge Guides, can be organised for groups of 15 and above if you contact the Tourist Information Centre. If you have a theme in mind or if you want a guide who is able to conduct the walk in a language other than English, no problem, please ask!
We can assist with organising simple schedules for foreign and domestic school trips including booking the guided tours designed for the age appropriate imagination!
Be assured we are in regular contact with local businesses and organisations across the borough like Royal Tunbridge Wells Together as well as regional partners such as Visit Kent and Tourism South East to bring you the industry insights and lesser known points of interest.
Tour operators and coach drivers are more than welcome to get in contact for logistical advice and booking guides too.
