What's in Guildford

Guildford is home to large numbers of people who commute to London, and is also a university town. Less well-known are its historic buildings, its connections with Lewis Carroll, its new state-of-the-art entertainment venue, and the fact that it is situated in a beautiful part of the UK.

Guildford High Street, the main shopping street in the town. Also running parallel to it is North Street and at the bottom of North Street is the Friary Shopping Centre.

The River Wey runs though the centre of the town, flowing south to north, to join the Thames at Weybridge.

The Cathedral of the Holy Spirit, consecrated in 1961.


Visit Guildford Castle and head to the top of the Great Tower for a 360 degree panoramic view of Guildford and the beautiful surrounding countryside.


 The Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, just across the river from the Church, is a thriving local theatre where you can often see plays and shows just before they head for the West End of London.


The new state-of-the-art entertainment centre Glive hosts top-class performers of all genres.


The Odeon multiplex cinema is situated by the river, with a Costa Coffee shop in the foyer.


Guildford has easy access to the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a nationally protected landscape of rolling chalk downs, flower rich grasslands, acid heaths and ancient woodlands also provides some of the best walking in Southern England.
