About Guildford

The borough of Guildford is a historic market town, located along the river Wye in Surrey. This town is Rich in more ways than one. Guildford is one of the most expensive places to live South of London. This is reflected in its vast array of designer and boutique shops. With two main shopping streets, two department stores and two shopping centres Guildford is a shopaholics dream. After a hard day hitting the shops there are a wide array of restaurants and cafes to help refuel. From the well know chains, to little independents hidden away down the medieval side streets. Guildford is also rich in history. Every Friday and Saturday it continues its traditional farmers markets along the cobbled high street. And you will see frequent street acts there to entertain the crowds. The Guild hall clock stands proud in the middle of the high street. When standing in front of Guild hall with its black iron grills, looking up at the clock with the authentic cobbles under your feet it transports you back in time.
