Paul Dunton shares his favourite things to see and do locally

Where do you live, and what made you decide to move there?

I have lived in Rusthall for around 20 years now and before that grew up in the nearby village of Fordcombe.�

What’s your favourite shop locally, and where’s best for a coffee or spot of lunch while you’re out?

My favourite shop locally is JB’s Music store! Best stop for coffee and lunch is Trinity Theatre Caf�, superb food coffee is great too!�

How about nightlife – what’s it like?

Tunbridge Wells is blessed with an incredibly strong live music scene so outside of running shows at The Grey Lady I can often be found at the likes of The Forum, Trinity Theatre, The Beau Nash and The Royal Oak Pub. Always enjoy a beer at The Compasses, Fuggles, The Ragged Trousers and Sankeys too!�

My favourite place for dinner is definitely Alexandra’s Greek Restaurant in Camden Road.��

When out and about, where’s the best place to go for a Sunday stroll, and are there any nice views?

I love walking in and around The High Rocks and The Beacon area and particularly the Ashdown Forest, the views are stunning.�

Where do you take people when they come to visit?

I love to take friends and family to Dunorlan Park and Calverley Grounds I think both are beautiful parks and The Pantiles is a really enchanting and historical place with a wonderful atmosphere.�
