Things to do in Guildford
Guildford is a wonderfully charming town in the heart of Surrey – just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of London to feel quaint and peaceful, with enough character of its own to be well worth a visit!
One of the main things that Guildford is so beloved for is the shopping. Historically, and even today, Guildford has always been a bustling market town with weekly, monthly, and seasonal markets with a huge variety of antiques, gifts, ornaments, clothing, food, and drinks on offer. With such a dedication to their mercantile heritage, it’s no wonder that Guildford remains a prime shopping destination. Stroll down the cobbled streets lined with independent shops of all kinds, or visit high-end fashion outlets and high-street favourites in the enormous Friary shopping centre.
After all that shopping, you’ll need something to refresh and revive you. Why not check out one of Guildford’s famous tea shops, country pubs, or even Michelin starred restaurants for something really special? With signature breweries and local vineyards too, there really is something for everyone to enjoy when it comes to lunchtime in Guildford.
Finally, if you’re a real trainspotting enthusiast, the Steam Dreams Rail Co. is the perfect luxury day out in Guildford – CrossCountry trains approved!
