Own a part of Royal Tunbridge Wells cultural revival

The site of the notorious ‘The Pump Room’, a 19th century live music hall and jazz club which was once the centre of Tunbridge Wells’ cultural scene, is now home to Dandara’s 1887 The Pantiles development, an exclusive collection of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments and contemporary two-bedroom mews homes in Kent.

The 127 new homes, including eight penthouse apartments, will benefit from a purpose-designed cultural space, where residents can come together to enjoy live performances and events. The venue aims to honour and celebrate the cultural impact of its namesake, restoring the local passion for music, art, and fashionable entertainment.

Louise Norman, Sales & Marketing Director at Dandara South East comments: “Once the epicentre of fashion, the site for our 1887 The Pantiles development is set for a revival, and will serve the community as a home, cultural centre, and meeting place. At Dandara, every new home we build is designed to the latest standards. Whilst this landmark development has been inspired by the past, it is designed for the future.”


1887 The Pantiles combines classical elegance with contemporary convenience, with each design feature and specification carefully considered to create stylish yet practical homes. Located in the vibrant heart of Royal Tunbridge Wells, the development complements its historic setting with elegant architecture, whilst benefiting from quality interiors such as fully fitted German kitchens with stone worktops and Amtico Spacia vinyl flooring. Each home is highly insulated, fitted with quality double glazing, and the latest energy efficient central heating and hot water systems.

All apartments benefit from a stylish resident’s reception and concierge service, landscaped courtyard gardens, and resident parking. Select plots boast sizable balconies and terraces.

Beyond the development, Royal Tunbridge Wells has been attracting visitors for over 400 years, offering the perfect balance of Kentish town and country. An eclectic range of chic, independent shops and thriving eateries span the High Street and the Pantiles, whilst walks can be taken from the town itself into the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

When you need to travel further afield, a five-minute walk takes you to Tunbridge Wells rail station, which provides access to towns across Kent and Sussex, or to the coast and beyond. Journeys towards London are fast and frequent taking just 55 minutes to London Charing Cross. Ashford International is also less than an hour away.
