This idyllic town has been voted the "best" rural place to live and vacation in England. It is famous for its woodlands, old cottages, and cobblestone main street.

Guildford is a bustling city located in the county of Surrey in the south of England, just an hour's train ride from London, costing less than £15 per ticket. This beautiful city is attractive because it offers the perfect balance between easy access from the city and rural beauty, as reported by express.co.

Guildford has also been recognized as the "best rural place to live" in the UK by Compare My Move, which took into account the number of restaurants, hours of sunshine, and average house price to determine the best place to move.

CN Traveler magazine named it a "beautiful place to live" due to its high National Trust rating, as there is plenty to see and do in Guildford.

One of the most famous places to visit is Guildford Castle and Museum, which offers incredible views of the city. Climb to the top of the castle to take in the surroundings, or spend a more relaxing time taking a walk or even having a picnic on the castle grounds.

After your walk, you can stop at The King's Head, a traditional English pub located right at the entrance to the castle. It has a private patio garden where you can enjoy a drink. This lively pub is known for its selection of crackling cask ales and classic pub food, making it the perfect stop for an afternoon of relaxation.

Guildford is a great place to take a leisurely stroll: you can walk along the River Wey that runs through the town or explore all that the high street has to offer.

During the warmer months, you can enjoy street performers on the city's main street, but you can also immerse yourself in Guildford's culture at the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre or G Live, which hosts numerous plays, concerts, and other events.

However, one of the city's most famous attractions is Guildford Cathedral, where you can take a guided tour, explore the surrounding beautiful gardens, or even climb the cathedral tower for stunning views.

If you're lucky enough to visit Guildford on a Friday or Saturday, you'll likely come across the North Street Market, which is open twice a week from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm.

No matter when you visit Guildford, it's a fantastic place to be, thanks to its spectacular beauty and rich history. So, it's worth adding to your next destination.
