Cafe serving hot and cold food in Calverley Grounds in the centre of Royal Tunbridge Wells

Haysden Country Park covers an area of about 65 hectares (160 acres) including a range of habitats such as river, grassland, freshwater lakes, marshland and woodland, all dog friendly.

Calverley Grounds is a lovely landscaped park of gardens located in the centre of Royal Tunbridge Wells.  It boasts attractive lawns and ornamental gardens, including an Italianate garden.

This beauty spot has played host to a number of much loved annual events including the Mela, The Royal Tunbridge Wells Food Festival and the hugely popular Winter ice rick and venue SKATE.

There is a welcoming café which is open throughout the year serving ice creams, drinks and hot and cold food, all reasonably priced.  There is indoor and outdoor seating available.

The new adventure playground area, designed by local resident and award-winning architect Jennette Emery-Wallis, was opened in September 2018.

Calverley Grounds also has a number of sporting facilities including three tennis courts, two netball courts, a basketball court and three croquet lawns.

There are toilet facilities near the Mount Pleasant entrance to the park.
