Excellent local primary schools such as St John's Church of England Primary School sit alongside the highly regarded and sought after girls' and boys' grammar schools. With a number of additional exceptional state secondary schools in its borough, such as the Bennett Memorial Diocesan School and the renowned Tonbridge and Sevenoaks Schools on its doorstep, parents are definitely spoilt for choice.
Recreational amenities such as the St John's Recreational Ground, Dunorlan and Grosvenor Parks, Calverly Grounds, the Assembly Hall Theatre, Nevill Golf Club and St Johns Sports Centre offer an abundance of leisure facilities.
With its two stations, Tunbridge Wells and High Brooms, Tunbridge Wells is a commuters dream as even in off-peak there are up to four trains an hour to London Charing Cross in 50-minute journey times or less.
