The Guildford Castle
The Guildford castle is believed to have been constructed around the time William the Conqueror was leading an expedition into Europe. And since the 10th century, this medieval edifice has stood the test of time and today a beautiful garden surrounds it to add to its splendour. In this particular castle you will learn all the historical details of the town since its early times.
The Shalford Mill
There weren’t any advanced milling machinery back in the 18th century, so the Shalford Mill was made to do with the available river water to turn its grinding stones. The Shalford Mill was a vital establishment of medieval Guildford, feeding and sustaining villages that brought their grain for grinding. The Shalford Mill is one of the places to learn about the great village life of Guildford, and it’s even been named a Heritage Site just to preserve this culture.
The Holy Trinity Church
It’s right at the centre town, a red brick edifice that reeks of medieval architecture. It was built by the early Anglicans in the 18th century replacing a previous church that had been destroyed on the same site. You are welcome for a tour inside this great structure to share the religious heritage of the Guildford people from centuries back.
The Winkworth Arbouretum
As many visitors would advise, make sure to visit Winkworth Arbouretum in autumn. The flowers bloom, the colors come alive, the entire arbouretum transforms into a serene and surreal scene with unrivalled beauty. There are plenty of pathways through the arbouretum to walk in and take in the beauty of the blooming vegetation. The Winkworth Arbouretum also acts as a wildlife sanctuary, so expect to see some cormorants, herons or emerald woodpeckers. Pets are allowed in the vicinity as well, so you can tag along your dog to enjoy the breeze and running around the trees.
The Dapdune Wharf is a true gem for housing some of the earliest structures when Guildford was starting. This place is a true gem for anyone interested in ancient history while cruising on a boat ride on the adjacent river. Alternatively, the Dapdune Wharf has designated cycling and walking areas for a different kind of unwinding. There is a coffee shop in the vicinity as well where you can drop by for some fresh coffee and cake. But whatever you do, just make sure you don’t rule out the boat ride tour; it will be worth your time and nostalgic memories.
