George Abbot's Gift to Guildford

28 September to 26 October. Free admission.

On the 400th anniversary of the founding of Abbot's Hospital on the High Street, this exhibition looks at George Abbot the man, and the wonderful Alms House he gave to Guildford.

The Alms House is still a home for town residents today.

The exhibition will show some of the treasures of Abbot's Hospital that are not usually displayed to the public. It will also trace the history of life as a resident.
