Guildford Train Station - gateway between London and the south coast
Guildford Train Station is housed in a 1980s building in the heart of the town, only a few minutes from the bustling centre. With plenty of services to London stations running from here every hour, some taking under 40 minutes, it’s a very busy hub for commuters who can also hop on the regular services to Gatwick Airport. The eight platforms are also accessible by ramps and there are shops and a car park with 657 spaces.
Exploring historic Guildford
Guildford was once judged Britain’s luxury shopping capital and there is plenty to tempt shopaholics. The cobbled High Street, overseen by a beautiful clock, is the place to go for jewellery, fashion and some big-name stores. There are also four shopping centres of which The Friary is the largest. Guildford has lots more than shopping and a look at the iconic 1960s red brick cathedral is a must. See the view from Guildford Castle or have a go at bowling, ice skating or swimming at Guildford Spectrum - kids will love flumes and other water fun.
Within a short drive you can be at Watts Gallery Artists Village, home to stunning Victorian art and the peaceful Watts Chapel, along with a tea shop. The beautiful Elizabethan Loseley Park and grounds are well worth a wander, as is the National Trust-owned Winkworth Arboretum. Looking for accommodation Near Guildford Train Station?
