Guildford Cathedral is a stunning solid red brick church located in Guildford, Surrey. This church was completed over 25 years and the tower now stands above the surrounding land at 49m high housing 12 bells. The cathedral is now a Grade II listed building, and is known for it’s clean, modern architecture.
Other notable features of Guildford Cathedral include the vaulting in the South Nave which makes for a great photo opportunity. There is an angel on the top of the tower which was made to commemorate a member of the Intelligence Corps who died during the Second World War.
Guildford Cathedral also has 3 side chapels - The Chapel of the Queen’s Royal Surrey Regiment, The Lady Chapel and The Children’s Chapel. The Lady Chapel is notable as it was built with funds donated from Canadians who appreciated the support given to their troops who were stationed in the area throughout World War 1 and 2.
Although Guildford Cathedral doesn’t have as many of the classic stained-glass windows as other cathedrals, the artist John Hutton created three carved glass angels for the cathedral which are uniquely beautiful. The cathedral is open every day and access is free of charge.
The cathedral is located in the town of Guildford, which has a population of around 80,000. The River Wey runs through the town and you will often find canal boats drifting up and down the river. You’ll also find the University of Surrey campus here in Guildford, and Guildford Castle is another popular place to visit.

Latest Guildford Cathedral parking reviews
All worked well found the space first time will use againGeorge
Worked really well. Spaces were slightly awkward to find (many have reservation plaques), but plenty of options, and checking in with reception was very easy. Amazing value!Elaine
I had no problems, and it made my day at the RSH a lot easier and cheaper, great value, thank you.David
It was very easy to book online. Very reasonable rate. There were confirmatory emails and clear instructions. The parking space itself was fine, there were lots of spaces. I was slightly worried whether I was in the right area to park as the noticeboards in the car park gave different rates, and options to pay. It would have been helpful to also mention that people who have paid online can park in those spaces. I almost went to the reception to check. (I had not had a chance to read the confirmatory email saying you do not need to go to reception). I didn't go to reception as I worried I would be late for my appointment. There is a good 8-9 minutes walk to the Royal Surrey County Hospital. However, it is a really good option for calm, unhurried, reliable way to park rather than drive around looking for space in the hospital car park.Jaya
Easy to find, good location, cheap, tidy. Got cctv so knew my car was pretty safe. Couldn't really ask more for a car parking space.George
Very easy to find the space and it was such a good price, my car was very safe and i’ll be parking here again !! thanks so much !!!Angel
I had to cancel my original booking as an appointment was changed. The cancellation was easy and quick. The refunded fee was also very quick. I rebooked for another day which was very easy. The parking is reasonably priced. Spaces were abundant. Presumably when the hotel is fully opened there will be fewer spaces. As there are no designated spaces I imagine the system will only allow booking if there are free spaces available? Overall I was very satisfied and would book again.Tom
I’ll be parking here again.Alexis
