Whether you are a returning student or new to town, we hope you’ll find lots of useful info on our site to help make your time in Guildford the best it can be!

From the cobbled High Street (they’re actually called setts….some pub quiz gold for you there) lined with high end home and fashion, shopping centres packed with brand name favourites and side streets housing independent gems, if you like to shop you’ll love Guildford town centre!

Guildford is also home to a number of regular and more specialist markets. Head to North Street on a Friday or Saturday for plenty of fresh local produce plus there’s a Farmers’ Market on the High Street on the first Tuesday of every month. The Vegan Market and Antiques and Brocante Market have proven popular new additions and you’ll find them on the High Street once a quarter. Check out our events page for upcoming dates.

We’re the only town in Surrey with Purple Flag status, an award that recognises our safe, vibrant and varied night time offering. As well as a great selection of restaurants and pubs, if you’re after entertainment there’s a cinema, 3 theatres and some great independent arts venues.

If you make it in to town and have a question pop in and see the team at the Tourist Information Centre on the High Street or flag down one of our Town Rangers (they’re the ones in the blue caps) and they’ll be happy to help.

We have been working with Guildford Borough Council and local businesses to ensure you can shop, drink, dine with confidence in Guildford town centre. Be cautious, calm and kind when you’re heading in and support businesses by socialising safely.

If you’re looking for a retail or leisure job to tide you over during term time, check out the vacancies page HERE for all the latest town centre roles.
