Birchden Wood

Come and explore Birchden Wood, close to Royal Tunbridge Wells, it's a perfect day out for families, walkers and climbers. Harrison's Rocks, a sandstone crag owned by the BMC, are right next door and Birchden makes the perfect spot to escape out of the city and into the woods. 

A small area of the woods hosts a campsite and with only 16 pitches it's first come, first served. Enjoy a peaceful night camping in the woods before you venture out climbing or walking the next day.
