Accommodation options

Guildford has a number of hotels in the area which are within walking distance of the train station and close to the town centre. A number of bed and breakfasts and Airbnbs can also be found in Guildford and across Surrey. For more information about Guildford view our location page. Notice that the ETSG conference overlaps with the weekend when students return to campus, hence a number of hotels may fill up quickly. In case, consider staying in Woking (3 minutes by train) or London (areas around Clapham Junction or Waterloo for fastest commuting to Guildford).
