Guildford is a popular large town, (officially not a city, despite the cathedral) with excellent transport links to London, the South coast and the motorway network. There is a fine balance between the rural settings one can escape to within minutes and the busy town centre and business parks.
The cobbled High Street is host to numerous shops, department stores and restaurants, and the recently renovated Friary Shopping Centre has many famous brands. We even have a Waitrose now, so you know it must be good place to live!
The town has become the official “county town” for Surrey, and is often listed in the top 10 of “best places to live” that newspapers love to fill their pages with.
