Guildford City Centre

Just as in the 18C, the city is dominated by the Guildhall with its ornate projecting clock. Nearby Guildford House is an elegant late 17C town house with paintings from the Borough's art collection and a changing programme of exhibitions. Note the vaulted stone undercroft built by a 13C wool merchant on the High Street and the Abbot's Hospital, a Tudor style building, now a home for the elderly, built in 1619.
