Guildford Area Guide
Guildford is an affluent town situated just to the South West of London in the rolling Surrey countryside. It is the quintessential middle England town and a bit of a commuter haven, but does have a fair bit of industry in its own right with major employers including Philips Electronics, Sanofi, Colgate-Palmolive, Ericsson and Allianz.
The town is pretty with a cobbled high street perched on top of a hill with gorgeous views of the surrounding Surrey countryside. The town has a number of notable buildings, including the Norman castle and the imposing red-brick Guildford Cathedral. Guildford has swallowed several villages including Onslow Village, Stoughton, Burpham and Merrow and transforming them into sprawling suburbs.
The town's position in striking distance of London and with easy access to Heathrow and Gatwick, not to mention it's old-world charm, have made Guildford a highly desirable place to live. Subsequently house prices are pretty high with properties fetching up to £5m.
With a population of just under 70,000, Guildford is a substantial town. The Borough of Guildford, which includes surrounding villages, has a population of just over 130,000. The town is the epitome of South Eastern affluence, with low levels of unemployment and a high average income. In 2009 Guildford was ranked the third richest town in the country, with an average wage of £38,000.
Schools in Guildford are high performing. There are five state secondaries to choose from, of which only King's College in the deprived Park Barn area is considered to be requiring of improvement, while Guildford County School, St Peter's and Christ's College are all rated 'good' by Ofsted. The well known George Abbot School is rated 'outstanding'.
Guildford has a notable public school, the Royal Grammar School, which dates back to 1509 and has several notable alumni including Monty Python's Terry Jones. There are also a few other independent schools and prep schools to choose from in the town.
Train links to London are excellent. There are two stations in Guildford, both operating frequent services to Waterloo via various outlying villages and towns. The quickest journey into London takes around 38 minutes. Road travel to London is also easy via the A31. Both Heathrow and Gatwick airports are easily accessible from Guildford, with flights to pretty much everywhere.
Amenities and Shopping
Although it's a substantial town Guildford has a pretty and very walkable town centre with most shops concentrated in just a few streets. The biggest shop is probably the House of Fraser department store, but there are also a large number of chain shops such as Debenhams, Topshop, River Island, Monsoon, Accessorize, Urban Outfitters and Muji. The usual restaurants also have a presence, including Pizza Express and Zizi, while the Friary Shopping Centre on North Street has three floors full of shops and a food court.
Additionally Chapel Street and the Lanes feature more up-market boutiques along with fancy bars and restaurants. North Street is also host to a market every Friday and Saturday with meat, fish and fruit and veg. You can also get away from the town centre via a relaxing walk on the River Wey, and maybe try a pub lunch at the Boatman.
