Turn your trip to the showroom into a memorable day out
Great news for our readers who live in and around Kent, we've
opened up a Sofas and Stuff showroom just for you. Based
just outside of Tunbridge Wells on the A26, it's the county's new
must-visit spot for anyone in need of a sofa, chair or some
interior design inspiration.
We're addicted to great sofas (and stuff). However, we also
understand that there are other things you might rather be doing
with your day off than shopping for new furniture. Shocking, we
know. So we thought we'd arm you with everything you need to turn
your trip to the Sofas and Stuff Showroom into a great day out.
From the showroom you can be in the centre of Tunbridge Wells in
less than 10 minutes by car (there's also a great
golf course just down the road). The town itself is a
picturesque spot with stacks to explore - the tourist information office in the Pantiles is a
good place to start. The Pantiles are the oldest area of Tunbridge
Wells, built around the spa that attracted people to the town
during the Georgian period.
One of the top attractions in Tunbridge Wells is the Spa
Valley Railway. The chance to ride a real steam train makes
this an exciting day out if you've got young kids and the staff are
all incredibly helpful and friendly. We recommend grabbing a cup of
tea from the buffet car if you can.
If you're after something a little stronger visit on the 22nd or
23rd of October - they're holding a beer and cider festival!
There are plenty of great places to eat in the town too - we
recommend The Ragged Trousers in the Pantiles. For a cosy pub
atmosphere it's also worth checking out The Black Pig on Grove Hill
Road, near to the train station.
You can also visit the spot where BBC's Pride and
Prejudice was filmed - Groombridge Place. This house with 17th century
gardens also has an 'Enchanted Forest' for you to explore - if you
like walking this is a great spot for an amble.
Another great spot for walkers is Ashdown Forest. It has 2,500 acres to explore
and inspired the Hundred Acre Wood in AA Milne's Winnie The Pooh
If you fancy a night out check out this useful list of pubs and clubs in the town. And to
help with your recovery the next day? Champneys Town & City Spar comes highly
