Tunbridge Wells Circular Walk

This walk, previously known as the High Weald Walk (not to be confused with the High Weald Landscape Trail), is a 27.5 mile route that encircles Tunbridge Wells with four link routes into the town itself allowing the walk to be done as four very long circular walks.  Alternatively, using public transport, the main circle can be comfortably accomplished in four walks of lengths ranging from 5 to 10.2 miles – see our newly-published guide below.

The walk, officially opened on 27 June 1994 at Groombridge Place, was created by the Kent High Weald Partnership (not to be confused with the High Weald AONB), a partnership between Kent County Council, Tunbridge Wells Borough Council and the Countryside Commission (since merged into Natural England) in conjunction with the East Sussex Countryside Management Service.  Much of the practical work was undertaken by volunteers including members of the Ramblers.

The walk takes in much open countryside and passes through a number of attractive villages such as Speldhurst, Groombridge, Frant and Pembury.

Kent Ramblers have published a new guide to the walk:
