Explore the green spaces on the doorstep.

Dunorlan parkDunorlan Park, with its large lake, is a green and tranquil oasis, and we think, one of the best places to spend a lazy afternoon near Royal Tunbridge Wells.

While you relax and unwind, the natural play area will keep the kids occupied as they explore and play creating their own amusements.

Hilbert and Grosvenor Park is a family favourite, for its large children’s playground, pond, dripping wells and nature reserve together with the kick-around area.

The Tunbridge Wells and Rusthall Commons are the place for free-wheeling fun and adventure. Explore the various trails on the Tunbridge Wells Common; look out for the birds and wildlife.

There is something to discover around every corner. What will you find? At 256 acres there is a mass of space, all ready to be fully explored.

This is the ideal time of year to discover our wonderful woodlands.
