The Spike – V106 (Morning)
15 September 2023 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm BST
MAKE YOUR OWN WAY VISIT
On the periphery of Guildford, the Guildford Union Workhouse still stands; built in 1838 as a result of the Poor Law Amendment Act of 1834. It housed the
forgotten classes of Edwardian England – the poor, the infirm, the ill and the destitute. Join one of two private tours, explore the lives of the Spike inmates and experience the sights, sounds and smells of a Casual’s Ward.
A cream tea (included) awaits you at the end of the tour.
Choose from two visit times:
V106 – Morning
V107 – Afternoon
V Café at The Guildford Institute provides a friendly catering service using high quality, fresh, vegetarian and vegan ingredients.
The perfect way to give a treat to someone special who takes real pleasure in learning new things and taking part in great activities.
