Tunbridge Wells is the only spa town in the Southeast of England, with elegant architecture and a variety of cultural, entertainment and shopping attractions, including the Chalybeate Spring, two theatres, cafés and restaurants and a mixture of national multiple retailers and independent shops.

Bishops Down Park Road is located on the West side of the town, about 0.78 miles on foot from the main shopping centre, which lies to the East, and within 0.89 miles on foot of the High Street and mainline station, to the Southeast, all of which can be reached via footpaths across the nearby Common.

State and private schools: Many highly-regarded schools in the area include Rose Hill preparatory school, Bishops Down Primary School, The Skinners' School, Tunbridge Wells Girls' and Boys' grammars, Bennett Memorial Diocesan and St Gregory's.

Mainline rail: Tunbridge Wells (about 0.89 miles on foot), with fast and frequent services to London Charing Cross (via London Bridge and Waterloo East) and Cannon Street with journey times from 50 minutes.

Communications: The A26 joins the A21 just North of the town, linking through to the M25 (junction 5) London orbital motorway and thereby to the national motorway network, and to the South coast. Gatwick Airport is about 24 miles to the West, accessible via the motorway or via the A264.

This area is accessed via a decked walkway leading from the lawn and is well-screened to the sides by a mature yew tree and evergreen shrubs, offering a delightful spot with a secluded feel for quiet contemplation.
