Being a part-time traveller, this blog focuses for a big part on the best destination around the UK and particular on those that are an easy reach of it’s capital London. Indeed it seems I’m on a permanent quest to discover what makes ‘Great Britain’ so great.

With that aim in mind, Gary have been on many trips, exploring the rural countryside of England. So far we have been to the international metropolis of London, the undulating moors of Yorkshire, tge cultured Bath, hippy Glastonbury, the evergreen Devon and the New Forest where wild ponies roam free.

Last month however we popped over to Guildford for a very short weekend break.

We had already visited Guildford on a previous occasion (I believe during one of our numerous house hunts). And although we enjoyed visiting Guildford’s Cathedral and walking along the canals, it wasn’t a town that particularly stuck as a favourite.

All that changed however a few weeks ago, when Visit Guildford invited us to their Alice in Wonderland Family Day and encouraged us to explore some of Guildford’s more unusual attractions.

This time we stayed for the weekend. Having a little more time on our hands really helped us get under the skin of one of the most unique and beautiful medieval cities in the UK. Which, by the way, also turned turned out to be a really great place for families to live or head on vacation.
