Out on the Town

Casino in Onslow Street is the largest nightclub in Guildford, and hosts 'MNG' every Monday, which it describes as 'Surrey's number one student night', with offers like free entry and 50% off all drinks before 11pm.

You can also party the night away in Popworld, which plays the biggest party tracks four nights a week in 'a modern and stylish setting', or check out Guildford's newest club, Vinyl, a retro-themed venue that hosted S Club on its opening night in October 2015.

For those looking for somewhere a bit more chilled out, Fahrenheit 55 is hidden on a tiny side street, just off the high street. One of Guildford's best kept secrets, it offers tapas and a wide selection of drinks, specialising in cocktails and shooters. Fahrenheit 55 has a lively atmosphere and a good outside gallery, without all the usual chart tunes booming in the background.

The Boileroom, where Ed Sheeran played some of his first gigs, is Guildford's main alternative live music venue.

G-Live is the city's best-known venue and it attracts some well-known acts, with musical comedian Bill Bailey and Scottish siblings The Proclaimers among the upcoming acts at the time of writing.

The Star Inn is a 16th century pub that has been entertaining the people of the town for more than 400 years, and is proudly continuing that tradition as the area’s longest-running live music venue.

The Electric Theatre is a vibrant arts venue right in the heart of Guildford with a warm and friendly atmosphere, while the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre presents a series of locally produced and national touring productions, including opera, ballet and pantomime.

There is also an Odeon cinema on Bedford Road, which offers a discount on ticket prices to students with ID.
