Wonderful that this place has been preserved..... the last"Spike" remaining in the UK.
Brought to life by the extremely enthusiastic and interesting tour guide that we had. Short video to watch in addition. I learnt so much about how the poor and the destitute were treated .This Workhouse is a must visit for all ages from school children upwards.

Had another amazing day at the
Spike Guildford again, with our favourite guides TJ and David. Some of our group came for the first time, for some of us our second. Could not rate this higher...

This is a hidden gem! The volunteers really bring the history to life and give you an insight into how hard life was. You can experience what the cells were like and the work they had to do.

I went on a Christmas at the Workhouse tour earlier today, led by David Rose. It was such a fabulous informative tour and I learnt so much. David’s love for history and the Spike oozed throughout the tour. Such a great tour. I would highly recommend this. The sad thing is the parallels with society today.

Thoroughly enjoyable and informative tour with TJ and David today. Their depth of knowledge and personal connection with the spike meant we learnt so much about this historical place that remains relevant to our lives today. On the tour we learnt about the workhouse, vagrants and casuals ward itself and how it is inter-woven with Guildford and the people who have stayed, visited and worked there from the day it was built to the day St Lukes hospital, which then occupied the building, was closed. Well worth a visit if you have any interest in history or human attitudes and behaviour.

I visited The Spike Heritage Centre a few days ago, and can't recommend it enough. John, the tour guide and manager, really took his time to show me everything, and to answer all of my questions. The attention paid to detail was extraordinary. It is very rare to have a workhouse still standing and offering tours, so I was very fortunate to have been able to visit The Spike. This visit really was eye-opening.

My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
I knew nothing about work houses or the associated history and I left feeling I had learnt a lot. I still can’t believe it closed in the 1960’s!
The tour was really informative and the building has been restored beautifully.
John, who conducted the tour was a really nice guy. It was well thought out and we both recommend everyone visits and learns about this fascinating time in our history.

We visited as part of history assessment and absolutely enjoyed our visit! Our guide John was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic and knew how to engage well with school children. This is totally new to me as didn’t know anything about workhouses and the system designed in England to provide for the poor. Would highly recommend

A really worthwhile Tuesday morning getting to understand the Tramphouse history and especially also hearing from guide Dennis his personal history - and as a result recognising how far our society has progressed in its care and compassion for people compared with the cruelty of the turn of the 20 th century . Though not huge in what is there , the way the story is put together is compelling .

A bit disappointed that only a small section still standing. However, the guided tour, realistic 'set pieces' and historical film brought the experience of itinerant work seekers to light.

Thank you for reviewing - we saved as much as we could from demolition as the spike was doomed as "it's a time best forgotten". We recommend you visit the Workhouse in Southwell, Nottingham, very well preserved, but they have lost their Spike, the one you visited in Guildford is the last remaining of over 600 in the UK with the Working cells intact for the vagrants who could or would not find work.
