Famous local residents have included Sir Henry Cooper the heavy weight boxing champion and Dame Kelly Holmes, the double gold medallist of the 2004 Olympics.

The railway to London opened on 1st May 1868 and has made it an increasingly popular commuter town, with journey times to London of around 45 minutes. Although Hildenborough has many shops of its own, the B245 connects it to Tonbridge and Sevenoaks and a greater variety of shops and nightlife.
