Camping holidays in Kent the Garden of England

Located less than an hour from London, Kent in the South East of England, is commonly known as the Garden of England; having historically been prolific with orchards and hop gardens. Today many of the hop gardens have gone, but the orchards continue to provide fruit, including apples, pears and plums across the UK.

This is only half the story as the undulating valleys provide picture postcard vistas across the patch work quilt of fields and woodlands of Kent. A Holiday in Kent in an area of outstanding beauty can be a truly memorable experience if you know where to go.

Tunbridge Wells in Kent

The handsome, historic spa town of Tunbridge Wells is a 20 minute drive along the A21 from Bedgebury Camping.  Tunbridge Wells first found prominence in 1606 when a fresh water spring was discovered by Dudley, Lord North. The town established itself as a rival to Bath with royalty and eminent figures in society coming to taste the so called health-giving waters. Tunbridge Wells remains the only spa town in the South East of England.

The 400 year history of the town is very much in evidence in the architecture which ranges from Regency to Victorian with some Kentish weather-boarded properties thrown in for good measure. Nicknamed 'The Jewel in the Town' the 'Pantiles' area of Tunbridge Wells is famous for its Georgian elegance and striking white columned walkway. It is home to a number of sophisticated fashion boutiques, antiques and fine art establishments, exquisite jewellers as well as places to eat and drink
