Royal Tunbridge Wells is a town in Kent, 30 miles southeast of central London, close to the border with East Sussex . The town was a spa in the Restoration and a fashionable resort in the mid-1700s under Beau Nash when the Pantiles, and its chalybeate spring, attracted visitors who wished to take the waters. Though its popularity as a spa town waned with the advent of sea bathing, the town still derives much of its income from tourism.

The economy of the town no longer depends on the chalybeate spring. Hardly anyone comes to the town purely to take the waters.

The largest sector of the local economy consists of hotels, restaurants, and retail with the centrally located Royal Victoria Place accounts for around 30% of all jobs. The finance and business sector makes up just under a quarter of jobs, as does the public administration, education and health sector. Royal Tunbridge Wells is arguably the most important retail centre between London and Hastings.  Wikipedia
