In the Sunday Times top 15 Places to Live, well connected to London by road and rail, in the countryside and big enough to carry a decent high street.


Guildford is a property hotspot. Located in the South East county of Surrey, Guilford is near enough London for commuters and far enough to offer a different landscape and independent atmosphere. It even has a castle thrown in too. Coupled with its high street housing well-known shops, there are plenty of independent and boutique shops to choose from. Home to a university and cathedral, Guilford is often thought of as the jewel of Surrey’s crown and not just by the locals. It also sits on The Sunday Times’ top 15 places to live, with judges listing the town’s over-achieving schools, brilliant high street and quick commute to London. Not too shabby for a market town!

Another appeal of Guilford is its country feel. Nestled amid the North Downs, it is nicely placed on the banks of the River Wey which gifts the town stunning views and fantastic walks. The properties available here are equally as attractive, to a range of house hunters with different needs. From large family homes with beautiful views, to well-renovated apartments, Guildford has a lot to offer.

Guilford has excellent transport links, not just to London, but further afield to places like Epsom or Cobham, as well as more centralised travel hubs like Reading and Gatwick Airport. By road, the town is well connected with links to the A3 and the M25. Guildford is also a very parking friendly town, with multiple safe car parks.
