Guildford Borough's Writers


Over the centuries, many writers have included locations within the modern Borough of Guildford as settings for their books.  Numerous others have either lived in the area or been regular visitors.

To support Guildford Book Festival, which takes place during October, our Walkfest is pleased to include a walk based on these writers and their works.

This event will be an informative stroll around the central part of Guildford town with stops at various points to explain their literary significance or to talk about some of our local authors and their books.

Time: Arrive 2.15pm for 2.30pm start, finish around 4pm

Meet: Outside Guildford Library, 77 North Street, Guildford GU1 4AL
