Stoke Park

Visiting Stoke Park

Stoke park is Guildford's largest and most popular award winning park. There are 52 hectares of unspoiled rolling grassland and open views across Guildford.

Why not explore our recently restored Japanese garden or cool off on a hot day in the paddling pool?

You can play minigolf, have fun in the playground, enjoy snacks at the park kiosk, relax in our rose garden or enjoy walking your dog in the 52 hectares (dogs must be kept on lead in our gardens). There is something for everyone at Stoke Park.
