Hotel du Vin Tunbridge Wells is in central Tunbridge Wells and within easy reach of public transport, the train station and local car parks. Our tastings and courses are run in a private room on the ground floor.

The hotel is set in one of the town's architectural landmarks, a Grade II-listed sandstone mansion built as a private residence in 1762. They have retained its authentic detail carefully, adding our unique touch to the 34 bedrooms with antiques and memorabilia.
