THE FASHIONABLE SPAS OF TUNBRIDGE WELLS AND HARROGATE

THE FASHIONABLE SPAS OF TUNBRIDGE WELLS AND HARROGATE

The famous promenade at Tunbridge Wells known as The Pantiles (bottom) goes back as early as 1638, but it was not till the eighteenth century that the town blossomed into full vigour as a watering place and The Pantiles, came into its own as a meeting place for the Quality. The seventeenth century had nearly reached its end when the first inn, the Queen's Head, was built at Harrogate, now the premier inland watering place. The Royal Hall (top), set in beautiful gardens, adjoins the Royal Baths and the Victoria Baths.
