After a week of working, sometimes a lazy Sunday is in order. despite there being big events elsewhere, Chatham Dockyard 40s weekend, Hastings seafood weekend, we opted for a day in Tunbridge Wells.
We found out that the Hospice in the Weald 10k Charity Fun-Run finished with a panto horse race on the lower cricket pitch of the Common. This proved to be an amusing event, as running as a panto horse seems a lot harder than walking around on a stage. In fact, we feel the children did better than the adults. Coffee was followed by a stroll to one of the Tunbridge Wells Electric Lantern Festival AudiToury locations. Walking all the way to the end of Upper Cumberland Walk for the first time, we found the “Boundary House”, designed by Michael Winter, and this mp3 story:
We then walked back to the Pantiles, where the twice monthly Weekend Market was on. A chill in the afternoon air reminded us we are heading into autumn now, and we were reassured that the Market will be around at Christmas time for unique presents and gifts. A drink outside the Duke of York pub fortified us for the trip back up the hill home.
