Car Hire Reviews Guildford
“The pick-up was easy, it took 5 minutes from arriving at the desk to driving out the car, and the return took even less time.”
Where to go
Guildford has long been hailed as one of the safest and most attractive shopping destinations in Britain, thanks to its beautiful architecture and a great mix of well-known brands, designer shops and quirky independent stores. Visitors should also explore Guildford Castle, a stunning structure thought to have been built shortly after the 1066 invasion of England by William the Conqueror.
Windsor and its famous castle is approximately 40 km away by car, or Epsom, a market town best known for its horse racing course, is 29 km away. Twickenham, famous as the home of rugby, can also be reached in around an hour.
London and all the attractions on offer in the capital is around 50 km away, while the seaside resort of Brighton is 96 km away. Eastbourne, another seaside town that has a number of beaches, is 128 km away.
Eating and drinking
There is an extensive choice of both independent and chain restaurants on offer in Guildford, catering for a wide variety of tastes. Traditional British pubs are also an option, with many serving food.
Things to do
Take a guided tour round Loseley Park estate, or visit Watts Gallery - Artists' Village, an Edwardian art gallery showcasing works from the Victorian painter G F Watts. Stoke Park, a large area of parkland, is ideal for a walk.
Guildford Castle offers a 360-degree panoramic view of Guildford and the surrounding area, as well as a model of the original castle dating back to the 1300s. Hatchlands Park, a Georgian manor full of art and furniture - as well as a keyboard instruments museum - is also worth a visit.
