For more than 400 years, Royal Tunbridge Wells has been renowned as a spa break retreat, after Dudley, Lord North – a courtier to James I – discovered the healing Chalybeate Spring at The Pantiles in 1606.
Word quickly spread of its restorative properties, drawing Kings, Queens and noblemen from around the country to bathe in and drink the waters and escape the trials of 17th century city life.
