Guildford Guildhall

Guildford Guildhall is our most popular market venue with our stall holders, many markets here being fully booked up to 16 months in advance. There is always a rush for spaces and any free spaces are like hens teeth. This tremendous location is an iconic building and featured on many photos of Guildford, the large overhanging clock being a prominent feature of the High Street. This is now our 10th year at this location and the reputation it has built up is surely what it deserves with some excellent sales throughout the year.


Guildford Guildhall is a 16th century building and is Grade 1 listed. We use both the ground floor and the 1st floor rooms with roughly ¾ of the customers we get into the market enjoying both floors. This is an awkward market for those with disability difficulties as there are steps to reach both of the halls that we use and the toilets and kitchen are down a further flight of stairs. The ground floor hall is a stone floored hall with a mass of wood panelling, attracting both buyers and browsers, whilst the upstairs hall is sumptuously carpeted and tends to attract the  best buyers. There have been excellent sales of £700+ on both floors, with some stall holders preferring the bustling downstairs and some the luxurious and more conducive to selling upstairs hall. 

To enable us to utilise this venue this is our only market which runs from 10am to 5pm. Unloading is right outside the hall, but stall holders need to move their vehicles before 9am to one of the local car parks. At the end of the day, road access for reloading is from 6pm.


Guildford can be good at any time of year, with many visitors each weekend and students throughout the year. Guildford is also visited by many thousands of tourists each weekend, with the picturesque Guild Hall a draw by itself. Summer tourist markets can be especially good from June to September, with September often providing the highest footfall of any of our Guildford markets. Having been established at this location for many years, our markets are now accepted as part of the Guildford scene and we have many regular customers who visit the Guildhall each and every market. With various processions throughout the year on the HIgh Street and a wealth of street entertainment, our event organisers with their spinning arrows and active marketing add to what is already a lively scene.


Although sales can be huge at this event for those with experience, sales can be disappointing for the less experienced stallholders, whether they are placed downstairs or upstairs.  Many stallholders at this venue, who are experienced, can obtain sales of £300 - £1500 on either the ground or 1st floor at different times throughout the year ... not always at Christmas!

Application Form

Please note the footfall recorded for this venue is through the front door, the split of those who enter either/both halls is variable from event to event. Usually 2/3 to 3/4 of customers will head upstairs but sales can often be better up there as you have a greater oppurtunity to actually sell.


You will only be able to fill the forms from a computer, laptop or tablet and not a mobile phone (with some exceptions)

If there is no form displayed above this notice then please access this page from a different device.
