Hotels in Guildford

Guildford is the county town of Surrey, and is 27 miles south-west of central London. A visit to Guildford is a must for anyone wanting to experience some of the county's best stately homes, charming villages, top shopping, or a leisurely stroll along the river.

History and boat trip

The River Wey is a tranquil 20-mile waterway running through the heart of Surrey, which opened to barge traffic in 1653. At the award-winning visitor centre at Dapdune Wharf, Guildford, visitors can see where the huge Wey barges were built and even board 'Reliance', one of three surviving barges of that era. Then, a boat trip into Guildford and back is a great way to spend some time.

Guildford Castle

It is almost certain that Guildford Castle was built shortly after the Norman conquest of 1066. Once you get to the castle you'll probably want to explore the stunning grounds, opened as public gardens in 1888 to mark Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee the previous year. The gardens host an amazing array of colourful bedding, a life-size statue of Alice Through the Looking Glass, a historic bowling green, music concerts and open-air theatre. After you've seen all, head to the top of the medieval Great Tower for a 360-degree panoramic view of Guildford and the beautiful surrounding countryside.
