“Large Shopping Centre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

We came through Royal Victoria Place Shopping Centre after we parked the car at the multi-storey at Royal Victoria Place during our visit to Tunbridge Wells on Tues 2nd July. It is quite big, it has two floors of shops plus a third with the food court & toilet facilities, with multiple exits to different streets - certainly better than some town shopping centres I have been to. Found a nice jewellers near the exit to the outside part of the centre and spent some money! Mr Simms (the old fashioned sweet shop) in the outside part is also worth a visit!

“It is what it is”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

If its raining or you just want the usual shops which are always in these centres then the Royal Victoria is the place for you. It has two floors of shops (and an extra one with fast food catering outlets and the toilet facilities. As it is built on a hill you seem to be always either going up or down hill as well as up and down stairs in shops.

There are numerous coffee places to stop and rest awhile or they also make good resting points for weary men to sit with the bags and some coffee stops are even conveniently placed near television shops so you can occasionally watch some sport if its on.

The main shops front onto the precinct which makes (albeit part outside) an opportunity to join more shops to this experience at the top end of Tunbridge Wells. The cleaning of the area is quite good and you feel there are staff around should you need them.

Thursday is late opening inthe evening and there is a nice feeling about the place with relaxed buyers in this evening.

I personally dislike Muzac and you occasionally notice it or maybe music coming from shops as you walk past but generally its quite a restful place to be except on Saturday mornings when when everyone seems to want to be rushing around buying things.
