The Former Royal Retreat, Vale Road, Tunbridge Wells, Kent TN1 1BP


The former Royal Retreat forms part of the Post Office Square development on Vale Road, in the centre of Tunbridge Wells and within moments’ walk of the town’s main line train station, with typical journey times to London of around 50 minutes.  The Torrington public car park adjoins Post Office Square.  Vale Road leads around to the historic High Street where there is a wide range of retail and leisure facilities.


The property comprises a former Health Club & Spa arranged over ground and lower ground floor levels.

The ground floor currently comprises a reception area; dance / yoga studio with kitchen; gym suite; 3 massage/ treatment rooms; and an office. As all the partitions are demountable this floor can be converted to largely open plan space.

On the lower ground floor there is a swimming pool and Jacuzzi; steam and sauna rooms; 3 further treatment rooms & spa area (unrefurbished); ladies and gents changing rooms with showers. In addition there is a plant room and ancillary stores.

We feel the ground floor is ideal for A2 / office use and the lower ground a leisure related use.
