Why Move to Tonbridge?
The medieval market town of Tonbridge lies on two channels of the River Medway in the heart of Kent and has long been attracting residents and visitors for its shopping, leisure facilities, its heritage and atmosphere.
Sitting between the better-known towns of Sevenoaks and Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge expanded as a commuter town after the arrival of the railway in 1842. Today it has very good transport connections into the capital, a journey of just 35 minutes, whilst by road, the main M20 is just 15 minutes away and the A21 links with the M25. Getting around the region could not be easier.
Having great travel links also means that in minutes you will be out and into the beautiful Kentish countryside, breathing in clean fresh air and enjoying some of the best views the UK has to offer.
Not only is Tonbridge a pretty town with good connections, but its property prices are also surprisingly affordable too. With the average property costing £490,358 it is £217,000 cheaper to buy here than it is in nearby Sevenoaks and even more so when compared to London prices.
The lively high street hosts plenty of events and festivals and is home to some fantastic independent shops and eateries. Also prominent in the town is its busy monthly farmers market where you can buy good quality organic food sourced from local producers.
For even more choice, Tonbridge is only 20 minutes’ drive from the famous Bluewater shopping complex. There is a selection of other non-retail things to do which attract visitors throughout the year. From Haysden Country Park to Tonbridge Castle, tourists and residents have plenty to look at.
