Guildford Activities & Things To Do
Guildford is a town with a cathedral, yet not classified a city. What more could you want? Well, you are in with a chance of seeing the elusive Guildford Bearded Lady, Guildford castle and you could even take a dip in the lido. A cultural hotspot of Surrey, Guildford is a town worth visiting if you are in the area.
Located just southwest of London, Guildford is a breeze to get to from London and the south coast, and is even a manageable journey from the South West. From London, taking a train is advised, as a train runs directly from Blackfriars to Guildford Station. From the South West, there is a train that will take you from Exeter. From the south coast, Portsmouth for example, you can simply drive north up the A3 until you reach Guildford. From further north, the journey becomes more complicated, and quite inconvenient.
Guildford House Gallery, the most visited art gallery in Surrey, is to be found in Guildford. If you fancy looking at a spot of art, this is the place to be as over 120,000 people visit each year! If you’re looking for some live music, there’s no better place than The Boiler Room, which features a wide variety of upcoming acts, previously hosting bands such as Dorje (seriously look them up). There’s nothing like a live gig to quench your musical thirst, but if you are still feeling musical, why not check out Andertons, an independent musical instrument shop in Guildford. The staff are all friendly, and it’s a guitar player’s paradise!
For those visiting in the summer, why not take a trip down to Stoke Park, which plays host to both the Guilfest annual music festival and the Surrey County Show.
