The Mayor of Guildford, Councillor Nigel Manning; and Stuart Harris and Jon Munce, co-founders of Queensberry, the developer, cut the ribbon at the high street entrance to mark the opening on Thursday.

Queensberry expanded and rebranded the 80,000 sq ft shopping centre, formerly known as Tunsgate Square, to create a more premium shopping experience. Luxury furniture company OKA, Bobbi Brown, Loaf, Cath Kidston and TM Lewin have opened stores there.

Stuart Harris, Commercial Director and Co-Founder at Queensberry, said: “We’re thrilled to be welcoming our first customers to the new centre. Including store fit-outs, over £30 million has been invested into Tunsgate Quarter to create an attractive and appealing shopping and dining destination with a stunning new atrium at its heart.”

“With terms agreed now on over 85% of the space we expect the last few units to let up quickly,” he added.

Paul Spooner, leader of Guildford Borough Council, added: “It has been exciting to see the vision we supported for Tunsgate Quarter come to life. The design of the centre has been delivered with sensitivity to some of Guildford’s iconic landmarks, offering outstanding views of, and now from, Guildford Castle. Once complete, our own improvement works on Tunsgate will elevate the area even further.”

The White Company, Cath Kidston and Lululemon relocated from their existing stores In Guildford to larger spaces at the Tunsgate Quarter. Seasalt will open a store showcasing its clothing, homeware and accessories collections later this spring.
