Walking Tours of Guildford

Guildford is rich in history. It has a fine collection of buildings covering Saxon, Medieval, Tudor, Georgian, Victorian and 20th Century architecture, making it an ideal place for a visit. Make the most of your visit with a guided walk around Guildford.

The Town Guide volunteers provide walking tours that show and explain the town to thousands of people each year.

Summer season 2017 complete

Our 2017 summer season of free scheduled public walks is now over and during that time we conducted more than 100 tours.

The Town Guides remain active through the winter months and look forward to providing interesting pre-booked guided tours for private groups or schools. If this would be of interest to you or any organisation with which you are involved, please contact us to find out more.

During the winter we will be detailing our 2018 programme which will be published early in the new year. We expect that our first free public scheduled walk will be on Tuesday 1st May, 2018. Please revisit this website nearer the time.

For larger parties... please consider a booked walk - we do these for private groups or schools. If you have any enquiries, please contact us through the Guildford Tourist Information Centre (01483 444333).

We do not ask for donations for our public scheduled walks or private walks for schools but for private group walks we usually ask for a donation of £3.00 per head. This helps us cover our modest overheads. The rest of the money that we raise we then give to charity - we are all volunteers.
