We are a town centre management organisation providing co-ordination, resources and leadership, to reinforce Tunbridge Wells’ reputation as a town of substance and economic importance in the region. Our Board consists of key business leaders in the town including Royal Victoria Place, Thomson Snell and Passmore, Cripps, AXA PPP and Markerstudy.
