Whichever time of day you would visit town it will be lively with music and loads of people out to do Christmas shopping and enjoying drinks with friends. Stoke park would have many carnivals at this time  with circus events and the Guildford castle as a historic viewing and to relax at.

The main places to go would be Whiterspoons, Whitehouse and Barthirteen late night to have a fun time after dinner.

Sales are usually good during the winter season making it accessible to by winter attire all together. The Friray mall and other outlets like selfridges have a great atmosphere similar to Dubai.
