Located on the south of England, Guildford is a town of Saxon roots and has had a long history of geographical importance. By 978 it was home to the Royal Mint, and in 1653 saw a very prosperous development with the completion of Wey Navigation, which allowed access to the Thames River. You'll want to take time to explore the area, which is why Auto Europe offers several pick up locations and a large fleet selection, so finding a car rental in Guildford is both easy and economical.
Guildford Castle is definitely worth a visit! Thought to have been built around 1066 by William the Conqueror, the castle has seen considerable military and royal importance over the centuries. You can visit the Guildford Museum here for local history and archaeology or stroll through the dazzling gardens that surround.
There are numerous options for art and recreation in town. Guildford House Gallery is the most visited art Gallery in the area. Yvonne Arnaud Theatre is Guildford's principal commercial theatre, and often shows productions before and after they have spent time on London's West End. You can catch live music festivals at Stoke Park, or head to Spectrum Leisure Centre for various sports activities, such as swimming, bowling, laser tag, skating, volleyball and gymnastics.
Though relatively new - in fact, less than 100 years old - Guildford Cathedral should definitely not be missed. The magnificent church boasts a staggering bell tower with a 15-foot gilded angel atop it, an impressive organ and beautiful art.
