One of the larger towns in Surrey is the ancient town of Guildford. Situated only 27 miles from the centre of London, Guildford’s roots date back to Saxon times when a small town had been established in the area shortly after the Romans left Britain. Since then, Guilford has developed considerably over the centuries producing an interesting and colourful history which includes the formidable Guildford Castle as well as the striking Guildford Cathedral. In addition, Guildford has developed into a hub of education and science, with the Surrey Research Park and the University of Surrey forming a big part of the town’s identity.
The Guildford community
Commercially, Guildford is an active and thriving community. It was the birthplace of Cow & Gate, and is currently home to a number of large international businesses, namely Allianz, Colgate-Palmolive and Phillips Electronics. Guildford also has some of the most expensive property in the UK, outside of London.
Because of this commercial success, Guildford’s population has seen some steady growth since 2001. Increasing by about 7,500, the current population sits just over 137,000. There is therefore no doubt that, with consistent commercial growth and the continued high quality of living, Guildford’s population will continue to see positive growth in years to come.
