Sorry, this event has been cancelled.

There are many interesting architectural details to be seen when walking in and around Guildford town centre. Each photo walk will focus on a different area of the town, where we will search for overlooked architectural details hiding in plain sight. We will look around us to find interesting examples of ironwork, brickwork and stonework. You will be very welcome to take photographs as we go.

Students will meet the tutor for registration outside the Institute entrance. Practical clothing and footwear is advised.
