Guildford has a bit of everything, whether you’re a shopaholic or a nature addict. That makes it the perfect place to build up your Instagram without having to use too much gas. We’ve compiled a few places that will round out your social media profile while giving you a fun way to spend your day.
Port Mann Bridge
Try your hand at architecture photography by capturing the industrial symmetry of the Port Mann bridge. Guildford gives you the opportunity to view the bridge from different angles. For now the only way to get close to the bridge is off of Highway 17, but the city is currently developing a park called Port Mann Park that will give unobstructed views of the bridge in the near future.
Surrey Bend Regional Park
Balance out that industrial architecture with some dose of mother nature. Surrey has dozens and dozens of parks, but none quite like Surrey Bend Regional Park (17775 104 Avenue). Over 4 kilometres of trails spread across 900 acres of preserved nature means lots of variety as you stroll through the park. Keep your eyes out for that perfect shot, we recommend stopping by at sunset.
Guildford Town Centre
You don’t need to drive to Vancouver for that trendy urban city-life shot. Guildford Town Centre’s (10355 152 Street) chic exterior lends itself to photography perfectly. The interior is also filled to the brim with thoughtful design inspired by the natural beauty of British Columbia. The architectural design company that renovated the shopping centre, Ivanhoe Cambridge, wanted to instil “excitement and a sense of discovery as one strolls through the plazas, sidewalks or concourses of the centre.”
