To busy and full of dose, but great in the early hours of the morning, when the dog needs to get out and about

Ideally sited in the town and well worth a wander round. The gardens are very peaceful and plenty of walking . In winter we obviously didn't see the gardens at their best but even in February you can appreciate how pretty they would be in other seasons. There is also a cafe on site.

Came here New Year's Day with my 3 year old to go Ice Skating! It was excellent and would definitely recommend when it's back! Toilets of the park are dismal, as with most public park toilets!

This is a beautiful park, there are various walks, a lovely fountain, stepping stones, hidden objects to surprise you. The lake is teeming with wildlife and there is a large area to exercise the dogs. Enjoy an ice cream, hot drinks or even lunch in the very good cafe. Take a picnic. Rest awhile and watch the world go by.... More

A delightful calm spot in the middle of Tunbridge Wells, nothing stunning, but really pleasant and a great value café reviewed separately

Every year from mid November to early January, Tunbridge Wells has its very own festive ice rink set up in the beautiful grounds of Calverly Park. This is the 3rd year I've been and it's always such a treat! This year I went with my sisters, husband and nephews and we chose a quiet time (10am on a week day)... More

Such a lovely, huge, open space smack in the centre of a bustling town. Perfect for a quick escape, as seen by all the people having picnic lunches in their work break during warmer months.

The park is a great location for taking a break away from the busy town, the park is well maintained with a lot places to sit and relax. The park however is a different story at night and I would not recommend anyone visiting or walking through it at night as it can be a magnet for people drinking.

We were looking for a Toilet and a lady told us to turn next to Sainsbury express, there was a lovely park with toilets and lovely seating round the park, we had our Lunch there and came back later with some ice- creams, a really lovely park.

Tunbridge Wells is blessed for greenery and this is a very nice park to stroll through. I found the unusual War Memorial monolith (in the article picture) one of the most interesting I have seen.
