About
Explore the history of our town - on foot. Established on what is virtually an island encircled by the Swan and Helena Rivers, Guildford is ideally suited to exploration on foot. To assist you in discovering the numerous fascinating historic buildings, lively characters and wonderful stories of this 'island village' three new heritage walk trails (with 35 interpretive panels) have been built. Each trail starts and finishes at the Old Guildford Courthouse (Visitor Centre).

There are four walks to choose from. All are along an easy flat grade, are well signposted and there an regular interpretative signs along the route chosen. There is a route guide available from the Visitor Centre.

Especially the story of the young woman who rode her horse into the sea to rescue many people, one of whom she married and lived happily ever after. So sweet to just stop and read on the street.

Drive or bus or train (Midland line from Perth Murray street station) alighting at Guildford, not Guildford East). If by train, walk up the stairs at the station to get onto the bridge crossing the track, walking east. Upon leaving the pedestrian bridge you will find yourself in James street. Walk north up the shopping side pavement. You will pass a few casual restaurants and a couple of antique (sort of) shops. Also at 189 James street is Guildford Book exchange, which has a wonderful collection of books including Australiana and I have on occasions picked up some almost rare old books that I have not seen in years. There is the redecorated old Guildford Hotel which is worth a visit as it has been rebuilt after a major fire and is a very trendy eatery. A well stocked Dutch deli style shop tucked down a little road to the right is worth a visit. All this takes place in 300 metres. Back onto James street and a lovely green park is opposite. Stirling Square. A vintage car meet takes place there once a month and I have seen some stunning USA vehicles from decades ago. At the traffic lights turn left into Meadows and soon some old 19th century colonial buildings appear on your right. Explore them. Guildford is short on public loos but there are some in the old farm building complex. Around here Meadows changes into west Swan road, and you cross the beautiful Swan River over the original wooden vehicle and pedestrian bridge, now around 150 years old. Within 3 or so kilometers you will pass some wineries which you can visit. To go further up the Swan River area is easy from here but obviously a car is needed. Don't expect too much from your trip but Guildford offers an atmospheric change from Perth and is easily done on foot.

With 3 teenagers in tow who aren’t quite as interested in history as I am, it was a real win to have this walk to do; which was long enough to be interesting, and short enough I didn’t have to deal with mutiny! The town itself is quite pretty, and the lady who helped us at the info centre deserves an award; really excellent

I’ve always enjoyed driving through Guildford, but the treasures are found at a leisurely pace.
A bite to eat in one of the quaint secluded eateries ,... then a stroll outside on a warm day is heaven to me.
Us two walked through the heritage precinct noting the Anzac homes. Love the austere solid front alcove-surrounded front gates on white picket fences and large cottage gardens. Plaques on homes tell of there establishment in the 1800’s
All your curiosity for the area can be fired up by first stopping along your walk into the info centre ( corner of meadow st and terraces road)

We stopped in at the Swan Valley information office and had a wonderful conversation with the staff. We were given the maps for the self guided walking tours around town.
We did all of them over two days.
They are very informative and a great way to promote the city. It is very well laid out.

I found my first map as I left the railway station. It was by the main road crossing and certainly inspired me into looking over this beautiful historic town. There is architecture from various periods, plus guided walks, long and short. Stirling Square has a great park for those who need a rest without coffee.
