A social and educational community hub in the heart of Guildford

The Guildford Institute has a special place in the heart of the local community. It is a unique venue where people of all ages and backgrounds can get together to learn, explore, create and meet old and new friends.

With a wide range of courses, talks, music recitals, clubs and visits, there are many ways to enjoy what’s on offer. Our Library holds both historical and modern volumes so you can research here or read at home, and we manage one of the most important local history archives in the area with a fascinating collection of photographs, playbills, brochures and leaflets and other important documents.
Our programme of activities is always expanding, so if you feel you could make an addition to the programme, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We offer affordable room hire for external societies and organisations, and our vegetarian restaurant is one of Guildford’s best-kept secrets.

The Guildford Institute is open to everyone and accessible to all: we have a lift and users can access each part of the building without having to use any steps. We also have a wheelchair-accessible toilet on the ground floor.

Come and be a part of our extraordinary community.
