Friday. Tunbridge Wells
is an old inland watering-place, situated amid pic-
turesque scenery. The chief parade, called the Pantiles,
finely planted on one side, and occupied by assembly-
rooms, libraries, and elegant shops on the other, has in-
teresting associations with Dr Johnson, Beau Nash, and
other celebrities. In the Pantiles and in High Street
are the chief shops and bazaars for the sale of Tunbridge
ware, much of which, however, is made at Tunbridge.
At the bottom of the Pantiles are the Wells, chalybeate
springs, discovered by Lord North in 1606. They were
visited by Charles I.’s queen, Henrietta, and imme-
diately became fashionable. It is observed of the old
church of King Charles the Martyr that it is built in 2
counties and 3 parishes—the pulpit being in Speldhurst,
the altar in Tunbridge, and the vestry in Frant.
