Worth noting

The immediate surroundings of Tunbridge Wells are characterised by stately manors, castles, and gardens, and even contain some vineyards and orchards.

Royal Tunbridge Wells, located in hilly country, is surrounded by large orchards and hops plantations. To the north of the city lies the Medway river valley, which is also flanked by orchards. To provide orientation for visitors, the citizen plant so-called “flower trails” to guide tourists to their desired fruit. Another trademark of the area are the tall hops towers, which were once used to dry the hops and are now residences.
