Parish Church of King Charles the Martyr
The town of Royal Tunbridge Wells developed after the discovery in 1606 of spring waters with curative properties.

Queen Henrietta Maria took the waters in1630 after the birth of Prince Charles and as was the case with Charles II, the King and his court were frequent visitors to the town.
Church of King Charles the Martyr
   
Church

The church was built at first as a chapel in 1678 (not being raised to parish church status until 1889) and was further enlarged and beautified in 1682 and 1696. The glory of the interior is the ornate plaster ceiling, the work of John Wetherell and Henry Doogood. It is of a quality rarely seen outside London.

It is suggested that the chapel received its dedication to off set
near-by Puritan conventicles.

The church is open Monday- Saturday, 11am-3pm.
