In 2018 Godalming Staycation will run from Saturday, 4 August to Sunday, 12 August. A full listing of events will be found in our online Events Diary when available.

Godalming Town Council launched Staycation in 2010. Staycation is a week-long programme of events and activities suitable for individuals, families and groups of all ages to enjoy who live in Godalming and its villages.

Since its launch Staycation has featured many activities such as fishing, singing workshops, Bollywood dancing, yoga, Ukulele playing, Sushi making, hand bell ringing, football, golf, tennis, ‘panto in a day’, musical and theatrical workshops and more. It would not be possible to include the wide range of activities offered during Staycation without the generous support of the many organisations and individuals who provide these activities either free of charge or at a specially discounted Staycation price.

There is also the Staycation Live 2018 event, details of which can be found on

All activities are either within or close to Godalming so there are no expensive travelling costs.

As well as the Staycation activities, Godalming boasts a wealth of other attractions including National Trust properties, the River Wey, the town’s sports facilities, historic and cultural places of interest and walks in our delightful countryside. Godalming’s wealth of pubs, restaurants and the unique and individual shops, make the town a fine place to spend your holiday time.

If you are a local business/group and interested in the opportunity of giving the community a chance to try your services or activity, please get in touch with the Community Services & Communications Officer (contact details below) who is currently putting the 2018 Staycation programme together.
