Counties > Kent > Tonbridge


TONBRIDGE has none of the glamour of Tunbridge Wells, to which it gave its name, though it does have the remains of a motte-and-bailey castle on the banks of the River Medway in the town centre. It is a busy one-street town with quite a few businesses and small industries. It also has the private Tonbridge School for boys and two grammar schools for girls. A one-bedroom flat in Tonbridge will cost £130,000; a two-bedroom terraced house from £175,000; a three-bedroom detached £250,000 to £300,000.

Good for: being more affordable than Tunbridge Wells, with good schools.
