aerial Photograph of The Opera House Royal Tunbridge Wells, Kent UK The Grade II listed Opera House was opened in 1902 and designed by John Briggs. In 1931 the building was converted into a Cinema and then in in the 1960s it was used as a Bingo Hall. In 1996 the building was bought by the Wetherspoons Pub group who converted it into a pub. The conversion was done with sympathy to the original architecture and purpose and can still be used as an opera Theatre, something it does on regular occasions.
The easiest way to navigate this gallery is using the geographic menu on the left. The aerial photographs are all organised in galleries according to their location so start with the county and then choose the town or village. Wales & Scotland are at the bottom under the English Counties. If your looking at a picture and are not sure where it is, click the arrow on the upper right and it will show you which album it is in. Click the album name to see nearby images. There is a search facility ( bottom left ) but this only works with words I have put into it. That's fine for searches of places or well known buildings but in most cases I have not entered road name or a post code. The gallery is only a small part of my collection of UK aerial photographs so please Email if you would like to buy an aerial view of something not in the gallery. There are over 25,000 photos in the gallery and I have an archive of around half a million pictures going back to 1999.
