How to Get to Godalming, Surrey
Godalming is a beautiful little town situated south of Guildford (If you have seen The Holiday, the town scene was filmed just off our High Street). There is a direct train line from London Waterloo – Portsmouth Harbor. Please let us know if you need a lift from Godalming station?
Where to stay
Air B&B is always a good option, but if you want to make a little trip out of it then have a look at these gastro pubs that offer accommodation. Please let us know if you will be needing a lift on Sunday morning?
Stag on the River –(The Stag is not in Godalming, so if you prefer a quiet country spot with beautiful walks and log fires this is the spot!)
Shopping in Godalming
If you are staying in Godalming, then take advantage of shopping our many charity shops for props. As much as the locals don’t like the High Street to be littered with charity stores, I love it because I’ve found many a gem in them.
Wattle and Daub is a beautiful independent home store which is very well known in the area. It is owned by my lovely friend Gemma and besides stocking gorgeous original items which again are perfect for styling, she also has incredible workshops running through out the year.
