Leave Guildford station by the exit nearest from Platform 2, marked “To town centre”. Using the underpass follow the disabled access signs, “Town centre via riverside walk”. Turn left at the river and follow the towpath.
On the bank to your right, pass the Electric Theatre, an arts centre and cinema in a former electricity station. The path continues alongside a mix of warehouses, industrial units and new apartments, passing opposite Dapdune Wharf (open Mar-Oct 11am-5pm, closed Tues and Wed), accessible via a footbridge further on. Formerly the centre of barge-building on the Wey, it is now owned by the National Trust and has a visitor centre with displays on the waterway—one of the first British rivers to be made navigable—and featuring one of the last Wey barges.
