Sunday Walk: Rolling hills in Kent and the Medway Valley

Book 1 Walk 15, Leigh to Tunbridge Wells
Length: 18.9km (11.7 miles) Toughness: 5/10

10:06 Robertsbridge train from Charing Cross, changing at Tonbridge (arr 11:01, dep 11:11) to arrive at Leigh at 11:15.

Buy an off-peak day return to Tunbridge Wells. Return trains from Tunbridge Wells to Charing Cross are at xx:19 and xx:41 until 17:41, then at xx:11 and xx:41 (journey time about 65 minutes).

This classic Book 1 walk traverses beautiful pastoral landscapes and the Medway valley, to finish in the historic centre of Royal Tunbridge Wells. It hardly needs saying that it could be muddy at this time of year.

The recommended lunch pub, the Spotted Dog (01892 870253) at Smart’s Hill, is only a third of the way through the walk. They are expecting our group soon after 12:30, but haven’t reserved tables yet, so please do phone them as you set out to let them know how many will be lunching there. There are a number of tearooms in Tunbridge Wells, especially in the Pantiles and in the High Street.

Take TOCW Book 1 or download the walk directions.
