Guildford, Surrey (嬌佛,薩里郡)

嬌佛 (Guildford) 是薩里的歷史名城,深受家庭和年輕專業人士定居的城鎮,這個城鎮還帶來了鄉村生活的感覺。 它是位於英格蘭東南部的倫敦通勤小鎮。Guildford 個發音係 Guil-fuhd, 而不是 Guild-ford。所以將直譯去 "嬌佛" = Guil-fuhd 較為貼切 💛


嬌佛是南部交通最方便的地點之一,從嬌佛總站到倫敦滑鐵盧的火車僅需 32 分鐘。A3 公路在嬌佛之間,因此,從公路直達倫敦市中心只需 31.8 英里。A3 還可在短短 14 分鐘內(不到 10 英里)提供通往 M25 高速公路的通道。


嬌佛擁有一些英國排名最好的私立中學,和一些優秀的中小公立學校。它還有一所大學,薩里大學目前(2021年)在英國 the Complete University Guide 中排名第34位。
