Hi - here's a link to local buses www.buses.co.uk/travel/destination.aspx… but remember that you can use trains as well. The preserved steam Spa Valley Railway from Tunbridge Wells West (NOT the main station) is worth a trip and you can get off at Groombridge to see the sights there too. Check timings and that your train will be steam hauled here : spavalleyrailway.co.uk/visitor_information/
Thanks very much Mike, that's great

And in the evening, if you are a pub and beer person, find the Weatherspoon's pub in the town centre . It's the old Opera House. The interior is worth the price of a pint or two and a perfect excuse to try some decent beer.
Which places do you want to visit ? Across the road from the train station is Calverley Park grounds, it's a nice stroll which will take you to the top of the town.
Tonbridge has lots of other old things to see (not me any longer as I moved) and possibly worth an afternoon out.
Buses can take ages as the road between Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge is busy and narrow, trains between the two run every 15 minutes, take 9 minutes and are centre to centre.
Thank you very much everyone for taking time to send me this info....it's very much appreciated!
