I live in a lovely town in the South East of England called Tunbridge Wells. It’s actually one of only three towns in the country to have the Royal prefix, which was granted in 1909 by King Edward VII to celebrate its popularity with the Royal family. Some people think that’s pompous but I think it’s pretty cool. I really like my town, and so I wanted to share my perfect day in Tunbridge Wells…
We’d start with breakfast at The Black Dog on Camden road. It’s one of my favourite spots in town, authentically Australian with excellent coffee. Eggs are their specialty and I take mine scrambled on toast with a side of mushrooms. It’s truly delicious. The relaxed atmosphere is great for a catch-up with friends, or go solo with a book or your Bloglovin’ feed.
After breakfast we’d take a long walk around Dunorlan. It’s a beautiful park located just outside the town centre and it’s the perfect spot to relax on a sunny day. We could stroll around the lake and even rent a pedalo for a few laughs!
Lunch has to be at Basil. It’s a superb independent cafe run by local people who have a passion for good food. Their menu is mouthwatering and their cakes to die for. My sweet tooth always gets the best of me, so I’ll definitely leave room for dessert!
The afternoon would be spent wandering the High Street and The Pantiles. There’s a lot of lovely shops to browse, from the newly opened Love Inc which delights with vintage style home accessories, to Kath Kidston and Sweaty Betty.
Then onto Zapatas for dinner, a friendly Mexican restaurant at the bottom of town. We can stay for drinks, or head across the road to The Grey Lady for an evening of live music before catching a cab home after a fantastic day.
Thanks for reading, until next time!
