Guildford Hotels

One of Surrey’s most diverse towns, Guildford has an enviable position right on the edge of the picturesque Surrey Hills, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This is the ideal outdoor escape for elite cyclists, with the Olympic site of Box Hill located here. The town itself is steeped in history, with centuries-old architecture and charming cobbled streets. It’s not all about the past though, with a vibrant shopping scene and a popular leisure complex to keep things lively.

Things to see

A wander through Guildford’s city centre is a tour through history, starting with the eye-catching Tudor-era Guildhall, which features an ornate golden clock jutting out over the High Street. The rest of the buildings along this wide, paved street are just as characterful, and house numerous shops and cafes. Just off the High Street, you’ll find another of Guildford’s most famous buildings: the Norman castle, built on the orders of William the Conqueror. The 11th century castle keep still stands proudly on its motte, which, in the spring and summer, is surrounded by blooming floral gardens. If you’re visiting with children, one of the best days out is at Guildford Spectrum, a swish, modern leisure complex offering ice skating, bowling and swimming. If you prefer your activity to be outdoors, then head out into the Surrey Hills where you can hike or bike in one of Britain’s most beautiful landscapes.
