Tonbridge is a town in Kent, in the south east of England. It is situated between Seven Oaks to the north and Tunbridge Wells to the south.
Only 25 miles south-east of London, the old market town of Tonbridge is extremely close to the M25 motorway and has good road connections to Hastings and Brighton. The town has a population of more than 30,000 people – thanks in part to its commuter-friendly rail links to Hastings, Ashford and London, which is only 25 miles away.
During the 18th and 19th centuries Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells became well known for their objects of Tunbridge ware. These finely decorated pieces of inlaid woodwork were often bought by tourists visiting the spa town of Tunbridge Wells. A more popular attraction in today's Tonbridge is Tonbridge Castle. Considered to have one of the finest motte-and-bailey gatehouses in the UK, this 900-year old castle has seen some of the most dramatic events in British history.
