The local area
Recorded as Tonebridge in the Domesday Book of 1086, Tonbridge sits on a spur of higher land which was better for crossing the River Medway. An 11th century castle was built in the area, which was considered to be an important strategic settlement in medieval times. The modern Tonbridge maintains its market town feel, and offers amenities such as an array of shops along the high street, as well as attractions such as Tonbridge Castle and Heyes Country Park.
The town has a great location within Kent, and its train station is one of the busiest in the county. This is because it offers services to London stations such as Charing Cross and Cannon Street which take just 45 minutes, making Tonbridge a popular place to live among commuters to the capital. The M25 motorway is just a short drive away along the A21, while Gatwick Airport is less than 30 miles from town. Nearby towns include Royal Tunbridge Wells and Sevenoaks, both of which are a short drive away.
There are some excellent schools in the area to choose between if you have children, with some of the most highly rated primary options including Slade Primary, St Margaret Clitherow Catholic Primary and Stocks Green Primary. There are plenty of great local secondary schools too, such as Tonbridge Grammar, Hillview School for Girls, The Hayesbrook School, The Judd School and Weald of Kent Grammar. Tonbridge also has a small campus of the University of Kent if you’re looking for higher education facilities.
