The Best Things
  • Probably the Wheatsheaf for food, atmosphere, service and quality... not been to Loch Fyne yet but will do. There is a pub where the buses stop on the corner of Castle Street..... brilliant breakfasts
  • Lots of lovely dogs Great benches The river is nice!!!!
  • On a sunny day, or a crisp autumn afternoon, it really is a nice place to walk around.
  • um... If you use your imagination theres some good parkour places. If you look for them there is some nice people here and also we have one of the best guitar shops in the country.
  • hngin bout n e fink lyk dat n we fink we fink of
  • Farnham should be bombed and replaced with a theme park.
  • the cool buskers, skating, food, WIMPY, LIDL and mad eric.
  • How dare the other low life who wrote a report on "Sandy Hill" say what he has, There are 1000's of very decent people on sandy hill, all hard working and polite. I think the person who wrote this comment about knock it down should look at his/her own life before commenting on others. Sandy hill - Top estate !!!!! Oh and by the way, I dont live on Sandy hill, just for the record you low life south side of town scum. Regards A born and bread family from Hale
  • Me and my mates out on the lash in beautiful Farnham!
  • The pubs!!!!
  • For rock climbing enthusiasts, a night trip to Waverley Abbey south of Farnham can't be beaten.
  • The Q8 by the station isn't open 24 hours anymore, not since BP opened their new place on the bypass just round the corner.
  • Extremely tasty selection of the more mature (40+) female of the species - it's because they have the time to keep in shape. And better still, most of them are bored... :-)
  • the best things is it's proximity to everywhere else - guildford, london, the coast, etc. you get to live somewhere else where there is no crime so your car doesn't get nicked or messed up while you're shopping, people are well off, the streets are well maintained,employment is 100% so you can get that saturday job you want etc, etc, and get to travel places that are cooler at the same time. Very handy
  • The EXITS
  • Zero (and i mean zero) crime rate.
  • The best thing about the town is the many roads that lead out of it.
  • Plenty of public houses - you're never short of a boozer... But quality is very much limited...
  • The best thing about Farnham is its pleasant Georgian architecture. And the Q8 petrol station.
  • There's more pubs than you can shake a middle-class MP at. If you like drinking, Farnham will supply all you need.
  • Excellent atmosphere walking around the town at night.
  • The pubs. The architecture. The surrounding countryside and villages. The excellent specialist (ie expensive) shops.
  • Very much an Art College town, with all that implies...
