Whenever I visit anywhere I plan to stop off at a bakery. It’s always lovely to find a traditional bakery, full of all those bakery smells – fresh bread and baking. I’ll always buy a sweet treat to enjoy whilst exploring the area or even maybe treats to take home with us to enjoy later.
I thought it would be good to put together all the bakeries in Guildford so that you can visit somewhere new on your next trip. Whether you are looking for somewhere to buy a loaf of bread, sandwiches for lunch or a cake and cup of coffee to takeaway, there will be town bakery options for you.
