We visited Guildford few weekends ago and was surprised to find the town to be so pretty and has big empty spaces. I was informed later that lots of rich people lives in Guildford. It is in Surrey after all.
It is not that far to commute between Guildford and Central London. Maximum train travel is about 1 hr but it also has fast train which will take about 30 mins to get to London.
Here’s some photos I took around Guildford.
