Guildford Castle grounds

Picturesque Guildford is a only short trip from London, yet it's surrounded by tranquil unspoilt countryside. It's got bright new modern facilities but it's also filled with beautiful traditional architecture.

Things to see and do in Guildford...

Set around the River Wey, Guildford was historically an important trade point between Portsmouth and London. Today you can amble along the riverside or take a gentle cruise in a riverboat.

Guildford is also a hugely popular shopping destination. The cobbled streets and historic alleys are home to hundreds of shops – from high-street favourites to independent craft, book and clothing stores. In the evenings you can choose from dozens of restaurants and bars before heading out to the cinema or to the excellent Yvonne Arnaud Theatre for a family performance.

Of course, Guildford is also the ideal base for exploring the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, as well as discovering nearby attractions and local villages.

If you're looking to stay in Guildford then why not visit the Burrows Lea Country House. The beautiful Victorian mansion set in 30 acres of formal gardens and woodland has stunning views over the Surrey hills. Burrows Lea Country House also provides eperfect venue for your wedding ceremony and reception.
