The Voluntary Town Guides provide walking tours that show and explain the town to thousands of people each year.
The most popular walking tour is the Historical Tour of the town. This includes a brief history from the earliest times with visits to the Abbot's Hospital, St Mary's Church, the Undercroft and the Castle grounds. In addition to the Historic Walking Tour, the Guides offer other walking tours on Medieval Guildford, Hidden Guildford, The River Wey and Lewis Carroll.
From May to September each year you can take the Historic Guildford walk on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays at 2.30pm. There is no booking needed for individuals, just meet under Tunsgate Arch in the High Street.
If you have any enquiries or wish to book a walk for a group we charge £3 per head, (there is no charge for schools), please contact us through the Tourist Information Centre in Guildford.
Much of the money we raise we then give to charity, because we are all volunteers.
