A stunning High Street steeped in history and beautiful architecture

On the doorstep of the North Downs, Guildford is situated 27 miles south west of London.

A riverside town in the heart of Surrey, Guildford boasts a stunning High Street steeped in history and beautiful architecture. With its cobbled street, and the famous Guildhall clock Guildford offers so much choice, you can find something for everyone! From the ruins of Guildford’s Norman castle form a beautiful backdrop to the award-winning castle grounds and the intact Mediaeval Great Tower offers panoramic views of the whole town from the top.

Guildford Town has an abundance of award winning independent restaurants and retailers, as well as your much loved brands to choose from. Our vibrant town centre is recognised as a safe and enjoyable place for a night out with lots to offer.
