The appeal of Guildford

If you are considering a move to Guildford, the county town of Surrey, here are some things you might not know about the area and what it has to offer.

The stunning town, situated on the banks of the River Wey, has a vibrant city feel whilst still retaining its quaint qualities. The area is home to stunning architecture and a vast history, with the likes of Guildford Castle on  the doorstep.

With a wealth of parks, Guildford perfectly combines town and country lifestyle, the best of both worlds, making this the perfect step away from the capital. The Surrey Hills are only 6.5 miles away, a hiker’s or nature lover’s playground whilst Stoke Park and its regular 5k events are enough to keep anyone on their feet.

With countless boutique shops, leisure facilities including Guildford Spectrum and a vast array of coffee shops and restaurants, the town is bustling with life and entertainment for all of the family. From weekly farmer’s markets and regular shows at GLive, to bars and clubs, there is truly something for everyone.

If education is important to you then you will be pleased to know that there are a number of private schools in the area and a great selection of Ofsted Outstanding rated schools nearby. Guildford is also home to the University of Surrey, one of the UK’s top universities.

With its close proximity to London, this town is ideal for commuters, taking under an hour to reach Waterloo via train links. Property is great value for money compared to premium London prices but within such an easy commute, you’d be silly to pass by this perfect town. Our Fort Road development is in a prime location with the town centre just a short walk away and Pewley Down even closer, so no need to get your dogs in the car to take them for their daily stroll.
