  • If you're visiting Guildford and the weather is nice you have to see this area. The gardens are really well maintained and it's a really nice area to sit and eat a picnic or just talk a quick stole through. Haven't been inside the castle myself but the gardens and area is beautiful
  • Beautifully kept grounds. Great spot to picnic or relax with lots of benches and niches. Bring a blanket to lay on the soft carpet of grass.
  • Lovely place to visit in any season. Best from spring to autumn with bountiful displays of flowers. A special Alice through the looking glass garden is hidden away behind the main gardens.
  • Not much left of the original Castle. The grounds are well kept. Good display of flowers which are maintained during the Summer months. The Castle Keep has received good restoration and popular with visitors. If you are ever near Guildford then it's worth a visit.
  • Lovely castle in immaculately maintained grounds in the centre of Guildford. There's not a huge amount to do there but it's a nice photo opportunity and particularly nice during the summer when the flowerbeds are in full bloom. The castle grounds are accessible during daylight hours. It's worth noting that patrons with reduced mobility may struggle with some of the steep slopes on the paths around the grounds.
