The town of Guildford, in the English county of Surrey, is a compact destination teeming with historical treasures. Though the central area is easy to navigate on foot, booking car hire in Guildford allows visitors easy access to the many attractions of the county.

Find a great deal on Guildford car hire with TravelSupermarket and take a leisurely look at genteel England...

The past has painted a montage of loveliness on the town of Guildford. From its early Saxon roots to the present day, thoughtful visionaries have crafted the town’s unique and pleasing appearance. You can shop among the Georgian buildings of the High Street, peruse art in a former home from the 17th-century, capture the magnificence of the Guildhall on camera or climb the steps of Guildford Castle and see where the past meets the present across the townscape.

Located among the green hills of the North Downs in the south-east of England, Guildford draws visitors wanting to explore both the town’s historical assets and the pleasures of the countryside. Having a car at your disposal during your Guildford break makes it easy to journey among the peaks and valleys of this stunning region, where walking trails twist and turn through woodland and fields and lead to far-reaching views.

Before you head for the hills and the other attractions in and around Surrey, be sure to check out Guildford House Gallery, the famed Guildhall, and, when the weather makes swimming a little more appealing between May and September, dive into the Guildford Lido – an open-air swimming pool that has been welcoming bathers for decades.

Save money on Guildford car rental when you book in advance. You can compare prices by using TravelSupermarket’s search tool. Collect your pre-booked vehicle at a location in downtown Guildford and be on the road within minutes.
