About Guildford

Guildford rests on the banks of the River Wey and is home to the University of Surrey, an 11th Century Castle and its imposing red brick cathedral. Conveniently located just off the A3, Guildford is equidistant from London and the south coast cities of Portsmouth, Southampton and Bournemouth. Moving to Guildford puts commuters within touching distance of London whilst offering the chance for a more leisurely paced life with easy access to the beautiful Surrey Hills and southern coastline.

Guildford is well equipped with everything you need for the modern age including great shopping, restaurants, amazing sports facilities and brilliant road and railway links.
