Grey skies won’t dampen your spirits as there is plenty to delight and engage all around Tunbridge Wells.

For the creative souls amongst you, there are a series of galleries to visit across the region providing any future Turners with inspiration!

Art Hub Gallery being one!  The Pantiles has some lovely galleries too. In June 2021 the South East Open Studios event is going ahead for physical visits to artists’ private studios right across the borough and beyond.

After such creative stimulation explore your own artistic skills and take up art workshops with Arty Farty Retreat, a local company based in Southborough or at Slap ‘n’ Dash Pottery at the Hawkhurst Fish Farm. Saltmarsh is the art shop to visit in Monson Road, Royal Tunbridge Wells to stock up on your artist materials – why not have a go at a happy Bob Ross style landscape?

Cookery Schools include chocolate making fun at the Temper Temper Chocolate Experience amongst others.

Local business Clue Cracker is based in the cool John Street bar St John’s Yard who urge you to keep calm in their escape room as you solve the mysteries!

In Paddock Wood, try not to panic in the Time Quest | Escape Room. Don’t worry there are no horror stories or zombies here instead exciting challenges for the family. Spend an hour trying to get out by solving clues from a themed set of puzzles. A great idea and an exciting challenge for adults and teenagers alike!

The Tunbridge Wells Sports Centre and its sister centres in Cranbrook and Paddock Wood, offer a wide variety of sports activities during the summer holidays such as squash, tennis, badminton, short tennis, racquet ball, basketball and swimming to name a few.

Weeks of glorious fun stretch ahead and doing nothing is not an option!
