Best Things To Do & Days Out In Guildford, Surrey

There are lots of great things to do in Guildford, a beautiful city, overlooked by an impressive cathedral.

Discover the depths of the tranquil River Wey at National Trust visitor centre, Dapdune Wharf. Learn all about the people who have lived and worked on this stretch of water over the past 360 years. Climb aboard one of the only surviving barges and children can take part in a trail and quiz to keep them engaged.

If you like being by the water and you’re lucky enough to be enjoying your Guildford family day out on a warm day then visit the Lido. There’s something really special about swimming in the open air and this heated 1930s pool will keep the chill from your toes as you splash and play. There’s a paddling pool for smaller kids and lots of green space for poolside fun, picnics or just to recline and relax on.

For those that are looking for something a bit more exertive, the Wild Wood Adventure will get your blood pumping! Scale the obstacles in this treetop challenge that’ll have you zooming on zip wires, walking across balance beams and navigating wobbly bridges.

Finally get musical at Hatchlands Park, which has the largest collection of keyboards in Europe! Get inspired by famous composers and make some music or sit back and let the melodies of others wash over you.
