The TN postcode area, also known as the Tunbridge Wells postcode area, is a group of 40 postcode districts in England, which are subdivisions of 24 post towns. These postcode districts cover an extensive area from the Greater London border at Westerham to the Sussex coast, including south Kent (including Royal Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge, Ashford, Sevenoaks, Cranbrook, Edenbridge, New Romney, Romney Marsh and Tenterden) and northern and eastern East Sussex (including Hastings, Battle, Bexhill-on-Sea, Crowborough, Etchingham, Hartfield, Heathfield, Mayfield, Robertsbridge, Rye, St Leonards-on-Sea, Uckfield, Wadhurst and Winchelsea). Additionally, small parts of TN14 and TN16 cover the rural southern part of the London Borough of Bromley, while TN16 also includes the village of Tatsfield which, although in the county of Surrey, has a Kent postal address. All post in the TN postcode area is sorted at the Royal Mail Sorting Office in Rochester which also sorts all mail from the adjoining ME (Medway) postcode area.
