However, nowadays the town has much to offer. Guildford itself has two main shopping streets, North Street and the High Street as well as a shopping centre called the friary centre. The high street and north street run in a parallel to each other and are home to most high street stores including a very large Marks and Spencer and House of Fraser. Guildford also has many nice places to eat such as Giraffe, Pizza Express, Zizzis and Ask. However it is worth nothing that there are very f... more

Guildford is a historical and rural place to live which is inhabited by between sixty five and seventy thousand people. It is situated in the south east of England just off the North Downs and surrey hills. The town is just a short distance from the canal that runs through the bottom end of the town.

I live about a twenty minute train ride from Guildford and have friends that work there, so visit often. Guildford is one of Surrey's biggest towns. It's a pretty town by day, sometimes no so pretty by night! For a twenty something like me it has a lot to offer. Here's my twentysomething's guide to Guildford... SHOPPING- Not the cheapest shopping venue, but a pleasant one. The Friary Centre is the main shopping centre, which features the usual suspects, Topshop, Dorothy Perkins, HMV etc.. The high street is lovely though, if it a bit hilly! It really is quite steep, avoid if you don't like a climb. It's a good looking high street though, well kept with some ...

My girlfriend lives in Guildford so i know it quite well. It is a large town with loads of shops and places to see. In the centre of the town there is a large castle that is very impressive and well worth a visit. If you go to the top as well you can see the whole oif Guildford and what a site that is. It will cost you one pound to scale the dizzy heights of the castle but it is well worth the visit. The musuem in Guildford is of excellent quality as well. There are lots of exhibitions and attractions to see and visit. Parking will be an issue in Guildford, i have often come back and found a ticket on my window for one reason or another. Guildford boasts and excellent ... Read the complete review

I have lived in Guildford nearly all my life and like most other people I find my home-town boring, with nothing to do, but after reading this review this should hopefully make your mind up whether you'd like to move here, have a day trip shopping or just go for a night out here. Guildford is located in the south east of England close to the M25 (9 miles from Guildford), the major airports at Heathrow and Gatwick and a frequent rail service from London waterloo, ensures that Guildford and the surrounding area remains easily accessible to both leisure and business visitors. Guildford is a historic and vibrant county of Surrey, offering first class entertainment and ... Read the complete review

Mmmm, Guildford. Pub bombings, posh people in green wellies, anything else? I always tell people it's "a town quite close to London if you take the train", and they say "Mmmm...", nodding their heads in vague appreciation. But I think Guildford probably deserves a little bit more of a description than that, hence this op. I was born in Guildford 26 years ago and apart from stints in Leicester and London, I have lived in the area all my life - so hopefully I am reasonably qualified to write this. It's probably going to turn out quite long, so I'll split it into sections. THE HISTORY ============ The good burghers ... Read the complete review
