Where is the Store Located?

Located in the historic market town of Guildford, Surrey, AD Guildford can be found on Cathedral Hill Estate, directly off Dennis' Roundabout A3 junction. Parking is available in a car park located directly outside the store with overflow parking available on the road should it be required.

The Guildford tackle shop is easily accessible from the A3 when travelling by vehicle Northbound by exiting the roundabout at the A25/A322/A320 to Dorking/Bagshot/Guildford/Woking, taking the 3rd exit onto Surrey Way. If you are travelling Southbound on the A3, you should take the A3 slip to Guildford, in the direction of Guildford/A322/A281 past Ladymead Retail Park to Dennis Roundabout, then take the left slip Surrey Way into the estate.

Due to AD Guildford’s central location, anglers are lucky to be in easy travel distance to a large variety of lakes from the store. Popular lakes are Willow Park in Ash, Bury Hill in Dorking and Sandhurst Lakes. Also, the Farnham Angling Society boasts a large selection of waters to choose from. If river fishing is more your thing, the River Wey is within walking distance from the store.

What Services Does AD Guildford Provide?

The Guildford branch is a large store encompassing two floors. The ground floor has open aisles which are suitable for wheelchair users. The mezzanine level is accessed via stairs - there is no lift therefore wheelchair users will not be able to access this floor. At the mezzanine level, we offer a good visual display of Bed Chairs and Bivvies which can be tried by customers. There is also a selection of cold drinks and ice creams that are available for purchase.
Offering a vast array of fishing equipment, AD Guildford has tackle suited for Carp, Coarse, Sea, Fly and Predator fishing. Fresh bait is available, however, if large quantities are required then pre-order is recommended. We sell popular fishings brands as well as our value for money range; Advanta.

All staff members of the tackle shop are self-taught anglers, with a passion for fishing and fishing products. Each member has a fishing speciality meaning they can offer tailored advice for all types of fishing as well as the majority of our staff being trained to Angling Trust Coaching Level 1.
