With regular trains to Gatwick, Portsmouth and Reading, Guildford railway station is an essential part of the GWR network.

Situated at one of three main railway junctions on the Portsmouth Direct line, Guildford railway station opened in 1845 and has increased in size dramatically to now handle around eight million passengers each year.

The station sits around halfway along the North Downs Line, which connects Reading at one end with Redhill at the other, taking in Wokingham, Aldershot and Dorking along the way. It is also the busier of the 2 stations in Guildford.

Guildford itself has a rich history and culture too, which can be seen up close at venues such as Guildford House Gallery, Guildford Museum and the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre.
