With its 11th century castle and location on the banks of the River Medway, Tonbridge has been an important market town since the Middle Ages. The railway arrived in 1842, and now Tonbridge station is an important junction between two commuter lines serving Ashford, Ramsgate, Dover, Hastings and Tunbridge Wells, as well as offering direct links to London Charing Cross. Shopping, pubs and restaurants are centred on the High Street, which links the railway to the river and Tonbridge Castle. The castle itself is a 10-minute walk from the station and is regarded as one of England's finest examples of a motte-and-bailey castle. It is open to visitors seven days a week, with tours and audio guides available. The castle hosts a programme of events throughout the year, including live music and theatre during the summer. Entry to the castle's attractive grounds is free of charge.
