Royal Victoria Place (RVP) is a mostly covered shopping centre located in the town of Tunbridge Wells, Kent. The centre features a 3 floor Fenwick's department store, a 2 floor Marks and Spencer, a 2 floor Bhs, a 2 floor Boots and around 110 other stores, as well as a community centre (the Camden Centre) managed by [3 ] Tunbridge Wells Borough Council.
The centre was opened by
Diana, Princess of Wales on 21 October 1992 after 36 months of construction. [4 ] [5 ]
The site is bounded by Goods Station Road, Camden Road, Calverley Road and Grosvenor Road. Some of the shops in RVP have two entrances - one to the internal mall and one onto Camden Road (such as Next) or Calverley Road (such as Marks & Spencer and Topshop). The bus stops on Mount Pleasant Road are close to RVP.
A small part of the centre lies above the railway line between
Tunbridge Wells and High Brooms stations.
Ownership [ edit ]
The centre was previously managed by
Westfield Group, which sold its 50 per cent interest in the centre back to the original owner Hermes Real Estate in 2012. [6 ]
