An introduction to Edenbridge

Edenbridge is a traditional small market town set in the stunningly beautiful Eden Valley countryside on the Kent/Surrey boarder by the River Medway and close to the River Eden tributary from which its name is derived. Originally a tannery town until the 1970’s, when the tannery closed. You will notice several road names linking Edenbridge back to its tannery days.

With a population of just over 8,000, Edenbridge has become a property hotspot due to its fantastic selection of properties. Edenbridge is also popular for its easy access to London and close proximity to surrounding larger towns such as Oxted, Westerham, Sevenoaks, Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge.

With direct train links to London and just a short drive to the M25, Edenbridge offers residents a relaxed and peaceful way of life. Plus, it's only an hours drive away from Eastbourne and Brighton. Perfect for beach lovers and anyone looking to enjoy a more diverse cultural experience.
