Mini guide to Farnham


Tucked into Surrey's southwest corner, Farnham sits upon the exposed ridge of the Hog's Back. Small, laid-back and charming, the town is a perfect place for quiet relaxation.

Farnham is home to Surrey's only intact castle, built around 1160 by Henry de Blois, Bishop of Winchester, as a convenient residence halfway between his diocese and London. The castle was continuously occupied until 1927, but now houses a conference venue. Its keep, from where there are good views over Farnham's red-tile roofs to the Downs beyond, is the only part open to the public and holds a well shaft excavated from an earlier Saxon structure.

Farnham's refined Georgian dwellings are at their best along the broad Castle Street, which links the town centre with the castle.

There are a number of comfortable accommodation options in the town, as well as a few quality restaurants. Farnham is not the place for lively nightlife, with local pubs being the focus of evening outings.

Surrey is bisected laterally by the chalk escarpment of the North Downs which rise west of Guildford, peak around Box Hill near Dorking and continue east into Kent. Ten miles east of Farnham, the county town of Guildford features some magnificent architecture, while the open heath land of Surrey's western borders offer pleasant touring and hiking. To the southwest lies Hampshire, with its spectacular city of Winchester and tranquil Isle of Wight.

Farnham is served by the A31, which links the town to Guildford and the M25. The M5 is also within easy reach. The train station, with frequent connections to London Waterloo, is over the river on the south edge of town, along South Street and over the bypass. National Express provides coach services to local and distant destinations, while the nearest airport is London Gatwick.
