Guildford was the starting point for our hike on the North Downs to Farnham. We took an early train from London and had a quick look around the town before heading off on our walk. The North Downs Way passes very close to Guildford so it makes a good base for the hike. I’d like to have spent long exploring the town but as we had 14 miles ahead of us our time was limited. From what we saw of the town it seemed like a nice, relaxed place and I’d like to come back and see more.

    Nice little page on Guildford :o) I stayed there a few years ago and I remember seeing the "Pilgrims Way" sign, it did look like a nice walk!
