As Surrey’s largest town, positioned in between Reading and Horsham, Guildford is a powerful economic hub of the South East just 27 miles south-west of London. A very affluent part of Britain, this pretty area of the world offers diverse shopping experiences enviably combined with gorgeous Surrey countryside – particularly popular with walkers. An exceptionally safe place to live whilst offering a range of exceptional schools, Guildford is ideally placed for commuting too. With an exciting assortment of contemporary and heritage style homes, we have enhanced many Guildford homes with high-quality glass solutions and will continue to do so.
Specialising in science, engineering, medicine and business, the suburban University of Surrey gained university status in 1966. Interestingly, English rock band Led Zepplin performed their very first gig here in 1968 and includes many notable graduates such as talk show host Jeremy Kyle and Canadian psychologist Linda Papadopoulos.
Overlooking the University campus, you’ll find the glorious Guildford Cathedral. Built between 1936-1961, its Neo-Gothic/Art Deco structure commands respect from its prominent position on Stag Hill.
A stone’s throw away from Guildford Museum is the medieval Guildford Castle, positioned on Castle Hill, which offers 360-degree views of Guildford and the exquisite surrounding countryside. Take a swift walk west up Castle Street to explore the scenic River Wey and the tranquil National Trust protected waterway of Dapdune Wharf. For families looking to entertain younger children, Stoke Park on Nightingale Road allows for the ultimate freedom with 50 acres of glorious open space that includes playgrounds, skate parks and various sports facilities. Furthermore, taking place on Guildford High Street every Tuesday of the month (except January), the Guildford farmers market is definitely worth a visit too; promoting exceptional customer choice.
