Purple Flag Award

For the sixth year in a row, Guildford town centre has been recognised by the Purple Flag assessors for providing evenings and nights out that are safe, vibrant and varied. It remains the only town in the county, and one of around 70 in the UK, to hold the award. 

What is the Purple Flag award?

The Purple Flag award is an accreditation process. It aims to raise standards and broaden the appeal of town and city centres between the hours of 5pm and 5am.

Areas awarded the Purple Flag are recognised for having a vibrant and diverse mix of dining, entertainment and culture, while promoting the safety and well-being of visitors and residents.

The Guildford Town Purple Flag Partnership is coordinated by Experience Guildford, the town centre's Business Improvement District, and includes, Guildford Borough Council, Guildford Tourist Information, Surrey Police, Surrey Fire and Rescue, Guildford Pubwatch, Guildford Street Angels and the night-time venues of Guildford.
