We visited this church with friends and family. It was a very cold and snowy day but the church was warm and the ladies there were very friendly and helpful. This is an interesting church with a lovely icon of the Virgin and child.

Well worth a visit this lovely church is lit by some huge windows, has lovely pews and is just elegant, do stop and have a look on your way to or from the Pantiles.

This is a gem in Tunbridge Wells. Going down to The Pantiles you could almost miss it but stop and pay attention. The interior is a must to see.

This church is redolent of the early life of Tunbridge Wells and its royal and royalist C17th allegiance and importance. A rare specimen in design, very fine plasterwork ceiling., just opposite the iconic Pantiles.

Discovered by Blue Badge guide taking us there. Sir Christopher Wren craftsmen created the beautiful ceiling and Queen Victoria liked to attend the chapel.

From the outside this looks to be a very uninteresting church, but the interior is amazing. The plasterwork in the ceiling is exceptional and the galleries and the pews just go to make it quite an extraordinary. We were greeted by two very friendly ladies...More

Lovely position: In some respects the exterior is more pleasing than the general feel once inside, where time has taken its toll: but the plasterwork is exceptional.

I went to this church during a visit to Royal Tunbridge Wells. The church was the first permanent building in the town from 1676. It has since that time grown to it's present size. Well worth a visit.

Not the most beautiful of churches, but one with an interesting architectural history. It's clear as soon as one enters that something is 'wrong' with the way the church is laid out, a mystery quickly solved once the guide sheet has been read and the...More
