Free Guided Walks

The Guildford Town Guides provide free guided walks in the town centre. In 2021, a full programme of walks every Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday at 2.30 pm from May to September and other dates will hopefully resume. Details of the programme will be finalised in the Spring, depending on official government health advice at that time.

In the meantime, a short 2020 programme of socially distanced walks is offered during September. Further monthly walks may be announced later in autumn and winter if allowed by official government health advice.

Check Guildford Town Guides website for more information.
