Royal Tunbridge Wells is a large affluent town in western Kent, England, around 40 miles south-east of central London by road and 34.5 miles by rail. The town is situated close to the border of Kent with East Sussex, and is situated upon the northern edge of the High Weald, whose sandstone geology is exemplified by the rock formations at the Wellington Rocks and High Rocks. The town came into being as a spa in the Restoration and enjoyed its heyday as a tourist resort under Beau Nash when the Pantiles and its chalybeate spring attracted significant numbers of visitors who wished to take the waters. Though its popularity as a spa town waned with the advent of sea bathing, the town remains highly popular and derives some 30 percent of its income from the tourist industry.
