About Guildford

Guildford is the county town of Surrey and is situated south west of London along the A3, on the ridge of the North Downs. The charm of its High Street hints at Guildford’s past with its cobbled street and historic buildings, including the Guildhall with its glorious gilded clock protruding out over the street.

Guildford is well known for its modern day Cathedral that proudly stands high above the centre of Guildford, showing off its fine craftsmanship to best effect. Also worthy of a visit though is its Norman Castle Keep, the Guildford Museum, Abbots Hospital and the Medieval Undercroft.

Guildford enjoys an excellent social life with plenty to keep both its residents and visitors entertained. Choose between theatrical performances at either the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, or local productions at the Electric Theatre, so called in honour of its converted power station location. For musical concerts you need to check out the programme at the Guildford Civic Centre, where you find concerts by the Guildford Philharmonic Orchestra, alongside modern music and comedy shows.

In 1996 Guildford was awarded the British Council of Shopping Centres 'Town Centre Environmental Award'. We have been judged to be one of the top ten shopping centres in the UK, we are in the top five for fashion and this year many of our shops have won their own awards.

Shopping is a joy in Guildford, not only is there the pretty High Street but a vast contemporary shopping centre known as Tunsgate Square. In the shopping centre you’ll find most of the major High Street names for fashion and home ware such as Heal’s, The Pier and LK Bennett, with plenty of coffee shops for when you need a well deserved break. The retailers of Guildford believe that the shopping experience offered in Guildford is without parallel. Many new shops and restaurants have opened and we hope that you will be tempted to explore the streets and lanes of our historic county town and discover the newcomers among your old friends. Guildford Borough Council, together with the Business Forum, has also been making sure that standards haven't slipped, adding a few touches to maintain Guildford as the premier regional shopping centre of the South East. We hope you'll agree that Guildford is special. Come and enjoy the mixture of history, high fashion and the great variety of other shops and stores, and visit us time and time again in the future.

During the summer months take advantage of free guided walks with a volunteer guide for an insight into the fascinating history of the town.

The walk begins at Tunsgate Arch , the site of the former corn market, and takes in the Guildhall with is famous projecting clock and Abbot's Hospital, a gift from one of the town's most successful sons who became Archbishop of Canterbury. the tour moves on to the castle built by William the Conqueror. Now all that remains of Surrey's only Royal castle is the ruined keep. the land around the keep has been transformed into a spectacular garden which is a riot of colour throughout the spring and summer.

Nearby is The Chestnuts, where Lewis Carroll often stayed whilst visiting his sisters. The Chestnuts is privately owned but you may visit Lewis Carroll's grave in the Mount Cemetery. Back in the High Street the walking tour visits one of two mediaeval undercrofts. This was originally a shop beneath a shop and now houses an exhibition.
