Crap town alert

Been away for the week, holidaying with the girlfriend and had the dubious pleasure of spending a couple of hours in Tunbridge Wells, sorry Royal Tunbridge Wells. What a rubbish town. Really rubbish. Even the supposed not chav bit, the Pantiles was wholly underwhelming. Even the spa (not the food store) shut at 4:45!
For all its history, Royal Tunbridge Wells is now just like any other town, but probably a bit more chavvy. The thing is that the map here really makes Royal Tunbridge Wells look glamorous, historic and picturesque. If you click on the map to enlarge you will see above the picture that the cartographer helpfully points out that this "MAP IS NOT TO SCALE". No! Really? You mean Tunbridge Wells is not a few centimetres across? Like something out of Gulliver's Travels, minus the Yahoos and talking horses. Shame could have left quicker if it was.
