Without a doubt, Guildford is a lovely place to live, with lots to offer whether you enjoy the countryside, cultural attractions and events or practising many different sports. It is a lively town and a local hot spot for the students from the University of Surrey.
Moving to Guildford as a family is therefore a great decision, as your children will be able to attend one of the excellent state or private schools in the area, and then attend the University without the need to move out. It is one of the very few student towns that are quite suitable for families and young children as well. It truly has everything, from reputable crèches to welcoming pubs, from children friendly restaurants to gym facilities and spas.
Guildford is also known for its key position, half way between London and the South Coast and used to be an important trade point, particularly for wool. Nowadays, this lovely market town, still retaining its lovely paved streets, is home to a wide array of shops, cafes, pubs, restaurants and more. The town centre is almost like one big outdoor shopping centre, and whether you are looking for jewellery, clothing, games and technology, or simply to have a good time with your friends, you won’t be disappointed.
Places of interest include the impressive Guildford Cathedral, dominating the area from a hilltop, Guildford Castle, the River Wey, Devil’s Punchbowl, Waverley Abbey and many more. Don’t miss out on the very interesting art gallery or the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre where you can sometimes enjoy plays before they even reach the East End.
As for sports, once again, the presence of the University means that there are many options for everyone to enjoy indoor and outdoor activities. One of the best sport amenities in the area is the Spectrum Leisure Centre in Stoke Park. This prizewinning leisure centre features several swimming pools, an Olympic size ice rink, tenpin bowling, an athletics stadium, squash courts, studios for all kinds of gym and fitness classes and several bars and restaurants to choose from for a well-deserved post-workout snack.
But for those who prefer to exercise outside and take in the fresh countryside air, the landscape is truly one of the best England has to offer.
And all this is a mere 35 minutes away from Waterloo station, which is perfect for those who want to move house to a lovely area but need to commute daily. Living in Guildford truly gives you the advantages of both worlds.
