Guildford Park and Ride

On Saturday we went into Guildford to get a spot of shopping for the new kitchen. Instead of battling into the City we stopped at the University for the Park and Ride scheme. There were signposts off the dual carriageway but the signs disapeared once we were in the main University campus. So we abandoned the car in the main car park and jumped on a bus. Unlike Reading’s park and ride schemes, the buses are all regular services that call at the University rather than dedicated Park and Ride buses. So 80p each return into Town and ten minutes after parking we were standing at the bottom of Guildford High Street. Stress free is an understatement!

Getting back involved a trip to Guildford Bus Station which is as pleasant as a trip to a 1970’s bus station can be!

So a couple more signs or a noticeboard would make everything smoother but the £1.60 to park for about three hours couldn’t be beaten!
