Great British High Street Awards!

Guildford High Street has been shortlisted for the Champion category of the Great British High Street Awards 2018;  The Champion category celebrates and showcases the best high streets across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.  Winners of the Great British High Street Awards 2018, sponsored by Visa, will be announced on 15 November 2018.

The bid by Experience Guildford followed research commissioned by Visa, sponsor of the 2018 Great British High Street Awards, which revealed promising signs of renewed confidence in the country’s high streets despite a challenging retail environment.

Guildford High Street was chosen by an independent judging panel as one of 26 streets to be shortlisted for the award.

The shortlisted high streets will now battle it out in a public vote, which accounts for 30 per cent of the final scoring, and will then have the chance to impress an expert judging panel as they seek to be crowned Britain’s best. Those interested in participating in the public vote can visit for more information or post your favourite photos of the High Street on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, using #MYHIGHSTREET and #GBHSGUILDFORD to register a vote! (You must use both #'s for a vote to be counted.)
