|Route outline (key)|
The A263 was a short link road in south Kent.
It started on the now-unclassified original line of the A21 in Pembury and headed west into Royal Tunbridge Wells, where it ended in the centre of town on the A26. You would scarcely imagine that you were travelling into a large town, as the road is lined with trees which gracefully hide the well-to-do suburbs.
The road has now been taken over as an eastern extension of the A264, except for the easternmost section which is part of the A228 and the route in the centre of Tunbridge Wells which is unclassified.
