Clare Lush My Tunbridge Wells
I’m Clare, a Tunbridge Wells ‘dweller’ since 2007.

I moved here after meeting my husband while travelling around South East Asia and enjoyed a career in PR for many years before settling down and having my two sons – now 4 and 7 years and our most recent addition – a little girl, born at the end of 2018.

I started My Tunbridge Wells while on maternity leave with my youngest son and we have had some great adventures along our journey so far.

I love sharing information about local events, classes and activities in addition to visiting new places and experiencing new adventures with my family around West Kent, East Sussex and further afield. My aim is to inspire local families and visitors to Tunbridge Wells to try new things and most importantly, have fun!

The blog now gets over 45,000 views per month and has a combined following of over 16,000 on social media and an email subscribers list of 4,000+ (you can SIGN UP HERE if you like). I write regular blog posts for Visit Tunbridge Wells as well as a weekly column for the Kent and Sussex Courier recommending three things to do each weekend. I also write the events section for the NCT Tunbridge Wells newsletter which I am delighted to be involved in.

Whether you are a local Mum or visitor to Tunbridge Wells, I would love to hear from you with any questions or recommendations you may have. You can contact me by email on or send me a message through Facebook – here.

If you are a business and would like help in promoting your brand, events or classes please visit the ADVERTISE page HERE to find out more!


  1. Great blog, always enjoy reading it 🙂 Just wondered if you’ve ever done anything on playgrounds and which ones you think are the best? Always nice to discover new ones 🙂

    • Ah thank you so much Hannah. The ‘playgrounds’ post is in the pipeline and we have had a fab summer visiting the different ones around here so I really need to writs it while it’s fresh in my mind! Will aim to get it done by early next week. Thank you so much for commenting xxx

  4. Hi Clare, Your site has been an amazing resource for me since moving back to the UK recently after 7 years in Australia with my hubby and two “tweenagers”. Previously we lived in London, so we did not know the TW area when we arrived here. I have loved discovering great recommendations at first in your printed booklets around town and then on your FaceBook page and your web site – brilliant resource – thanks so much! I would love to have a chat to see what the best way is I can promote my own events through My Tunbridge Wells. I educate families and individuals on how to detoxify their homes and support their family’s wellness with therapeutic grade essential oils and natural products. Read more about my story of overcoming 15 years of crippling auto-immune disease and the products I distribute on my site: I would be grateful to get some guidance on the options available to promote my events (mostly free educational events or low cost make & take workshops) via your service. (PS: I am in the process of rebranding as I cannot use the business name I had in Australia, so not a very co-ordinated web and social media presence right at this moment – please excuse). Look forward to hearing from you.
