shops, restaurants and local pubs. It boasts a fine example of a 'Motte and Bailey'
castle built in the 13th century, set on the banks of the river Medway.
Tonbridge mainline station provides fast commuter links into London (Cannon
Street/London Bridge/Charing Cross in approximately 35 – 50 minutes) with road
