The Jewel of the Weald
Tenterden, the long-dubbed "Jewel of the Weald", still sparkles. Reams of heritage buildings house one-off shops; thriving festivals and nearby vineyards add even more shine.
Tenterden's townscape is idyllic. Swathes of greens are lined with trees; a wealth of ancient architecture includes white-painted weatherboarding, tile-hung fascias and unique 'mathematical tiles'. It creates a relaxed, irresistible environment in which to shop. Quirky, upmarket, independent stores are everywhere, specialising in gifts, books, collectibles and antiques. Quaint cafes and smart eateries lie dotted around.
