Guildford : Guildford's architecture is wide ranging and remarkable from the surviving keep of the castle built by Henry II off Quarry Street to the beautiful new cathedral conspicuously set on Stag Hill, to the newer buildings of the University of Surrey. West of Guildford the North Downs narrow into the spectacular Hog's Back and eastwards they broaden into wooded hills and commons, divided by the valley of the River Tillingbourne. Here lie the attractive villages of Shalford, Wonersh, Shere and Albury. The Royal Horticultural Society's Wisley Gardens are also close by.
The Cathedral can easily be seen on top of its hill surveying the town. It was started in 1936 to designs by Sir Edward Maufe and was finally consecrated in 1961. Nearby is the University of Surrey and the well-known Yvonne Arnaud Theatre which was opened on the banks of the River Wey in 1958. The River Wey was an important trade route to London and first opened to barge traffic in the seventeenth century assisting the town‘s rise to prosperity.
Nearby is Loseley House, a stone-built manor house built in the sixteenth century with fine period furnishings and set in parkland with a walled garden.
Guildford was mentioned in Domesday, the site of a Saxon cemetery, and the great Norman tower keep has long been overshadowed by the county town. There are many attractive buildings in the town not least the Tudor Grammar School founded in the early sixteenth century, the imposing Guildhall, and the Abbot‘s hospital. The writer and politician William Cobbett was born nearby and he thought Guildford was ‘the prettiest, and taken altogether the most agreeable and most happy-looking town that I ever saw in my life‘.
Facilities: These include a resident manager and emergency alarm service, large communal lounge, guest facilities, laundry and gardens. Parking is within the development.
