Centuries later, the city is still well known for its picturesque landscapes and the vast natural domains that engulf it from all directions, only that nowadays all the castles and noble residences that were once home to royalty have been converted to museums.

The city underwent numerous changes over the course of time, and it is was only years after the Second World War that it became what it is today – a place where people can forget that they’re actually in a city and immerse themselves into nature. Marking the end of the war was a decree from the city’s council, which made the entire territory surrounding it a natural reserve and also imposed one of the highest real estate standards in the country, the properties available in this region being some of the most expensive one can purchase.

When it comes to the city itself and what it has to offer, people might be surprised to know that although it has been classified as a city, the Guildford is more of a county for those who come from large urban agglomerations. Featuring all the commodities and aspects of a regular city such as city hall, road and rail infrastructure, city centre, malls, markets and shops, Guildford could be considered by some as the urban centre hidden in the southern England territories, right below London.
