Guildford Castle

Click to enlarge images below:

Type: Castle / Fort

Visit Guildford Castle and head to the top of the Great Tower for a 360 degree panoramic view of Guildford and the beautiful surrounding countryside.

In 2003 - 2004 the Great Tower was conserved and the original crenulations and other features were discovered. A roof and floor were re-instated at first floor level, which has made the building more accessible to visitors.

The Tower contains a model of the original castle circa 1300, and interpretation panels tracing its history to the present day. There is a visitor platform on the roof offering panoramic views of Guildford. There is a small gift shop on the ground floor of the castle.

Please note the castle is open April to September every day from 10am – 5pm, final admission 16.30. It is open at weekends in March and October and autumn half term 10am until 15.30.

Admission:
Adult: £3.00
Child & concession: £1.50
