What is The Guildford Spike?

The Spike Heritage Centre

The Spike is unique. Opened in 1836, the workhouse is the last remaining of over 600 in the country with its stone-breaking/wood-chopping cells showing how you could have paid for a night's kip. Ever picked Oakum? Find out how! The Spike is brought to life twice a week. Open on Tuesdays and Saturdays from 10a.m. Last t0ur 3p.m. Tours take approximately 90 minutes, including a short film. ยฃ6.00/5.00. Groups can book in any day for a minimum charge of ยฃ45.00, please call to arrange. We can make your day very memorable and provide luncheon/refreshments. Evening tours and parties catered for. Parking is free.

The Spike was converted into a fully functioning NHS hospital in 1945 but the journey from workhouse to hospital wasnโ€™t a simple one! The St Lukeโ€™s Hospital Heritage project investigates the progression the workhouse has taken over the years. Currently in The Spike there is an exhibition on this fascinating project including stories and pictures from patients and staff. To find out more or if you were related to St Lukeโ€™s Hospital, get in touch! We are always looking for more information!
