The UK is old. Period.
Since we’ve been here we’ve eaten at a pub 600 years old, live in a house surrounded by 300 year-old houses and yesterday went to a city founded 1,600 years ago when the Saxons ran the Romans out of what is now Southern England. Guildford has come a long way since then and now is considered a growing city southwest of London. It is about a 20 minute train ride from where we live.
Guildford has had an interesting history intertwined with royalty that includes William the Conqueror. In fact, the castle in the images below is believed to have been a stronghold of his founded in 1066.
Here are a few images from the trip each with a few lines of commentary. As with most of the pics on this blog, if you click on the images they will enlarge in their own window and if you wait a few seconds for them to load you can view in a slide show. Enjoy.
