Guildford Boating and Sailing Holidays

Including narrowboats, river cruisers, yacht charter, cruising, based or starting in Guildford.

Surrey’s attractive university town, situated on the banks of the River Wey, boasts the only new cathedral to have been built in the south of England since the Reformation. Erected in the last century, the red-brick Gothic-style building was designed by Sir Edward Maufe and was consecrated in 1961.

Despite this modern masterpiece, the town dates at least to the Saxon times period and the tower of its parish church dates from 1036, while its castle keep was a Norman project.

A one-time woollen and coaching centre, Guildford’s fortunes owe much to the creation in the 17th century of the Wey Navigation, one of the first rivers in England to be made navigable. The waterway connected the town with the Thames at Weybridge and thence to the metropolis of London. The full story of this important innovation is told at the Dapdune Wharf visitor centre where visitors can clamber on board one of the few surviving Wey barges.

Guildford’s most obvious landmark is its Tudor Guildhall. It has an overhanging clock whose innards date from 1560.

Major attractions around the town include the country houses of Clandon Park (which also houses the Queen’s Royal Surrey Regiment Museum), Hatchlands, Loseley Park and the Elizabethan Sutton Place; the latter was one of the first non-fortified mansions built in Britain.

Guildford’ most famous resident was the Victorian writer Lewis Carroll who is buried at The Mount Cemetery.

In this section we give details of self-catering boats for hire on canals, rivers, lakes; yacht charter, flotilla sailing, cruising with or without crew, sail training, etc. in Guildford or surrounding areas.
