Guildford, the County Town of Surrey, is only 30 miles from London and easily accessible by road, rail and air. This historic town offers excellent shopping; combining the cobbled High Street which is criss-crossed by narrow streets filled with shops, cafes and restaurants, with modern purpose-built arcades. Close by are the remains of Guildford's Norman castle, surrounded by a spectacular display of flowers and plants, and Guildford Museum, home to local history and memorabilia of two well-known inhabitants of the area: Lewis Carroll and Gertrude Jekyll. For evening entertainment the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre frequently previews West End plays. Guildford Cathedral, built earlier this century, provides a fine contrast between the old and the new and the River Wey runs through the town centre offering an easy route from the town to the country.
Guildford is set in beautiful countryside and its' pretty villages are home to splendid National Trust properties, stately homes and delightful gardens. A year round attraction can be found at Wisley: the RHS Garden is delightful during every season. A different garden experience is provided at Painshill Park, a restored 18th century landscape garden.
A wide range of accommodation is available to suit every taste from cosy guest houses to four star hotels. Population 67,000
