Tonbridge Adult Education Centre


The Tonbridge Adult Education centre operates from adjoining buildings on Avebury Avenue; one is a Victorian structure built in 1890 as the Technical Institute and Free Library with an amazing art room. The second, newer building was opened in 1984.

The centre specialises in Craft courses and has a reputation for high-quality Stained Glass, Sugarcraft, Floristry, Silversmithing and Jewellery. We also offer Language, Wellbeing and History courses, as well as English and Maths. This year we are expanding our programme in Tonbridge, with the addition of new classrooms and facilities.
