About

Tenterden, known as the ‘Jewel of the Weald’, offers the best of all worlds; fascinating history, a wealth of architecture and excellent shopping - all within everyone’s idea of a typical country town and surrounded by Kent’s tranquil countryside. 

At its centre are the tree-lined greens that distance you from the world going by. So you can shop at a relaxed pace, browsing in the wide range of shops, from the unique and usual to the familiar and well known. Beautiful gifts, crafts, books and antiques…  Tenterden is the place where you are bound to find something special. 

Tenterden is also a fascinating town to explore. Georgian buildings share the streets with tall Victorian houses and tiny cottages; brick and stucco blend easily alongside traditional Kent tile and weatherboard, creating a timeless air.  To find out more visit the town’s museum or take a nostalgic ride back in time on the Kent & East Sussex Railway. Admire the countryside as you steam along to Bodiam Castle then visit the 16th-century half- timbered home of the 19th-century Shakespearean actress Dame Ellen Terry and see the sumptuous display of theatrical mementoes. Then take a tour and tasting at nearby Tenterden Vineyard and relax with a glass of wine.
