History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
There is more to Tonbridge than the castle, though. The parish church of St Peter & St Paul is a 12th-century building with a 14th-century tower.
Tonbridge was granted a market charter in 1259, and there are quite a few buildings dating from the medieval periods to be seen about the town. Four miles distant is the lovely Elizabethan manor of Penshurst Place, while the moated manor house of Ightham Mote is only 5 miles distant.
