Guildford has been recognised for its evening and night-time economy.
The town is flying the Purple Flag for the fourth year running and is the only place in Surrey to boast that achievement.
The coveted award is given to towns and cities across the UK and Ireland who provide a vibrant and diverse mix of dining, entertainment and culture while promoting the safety and well-being of visitors and local residents.
It has the aim of broadening the appeal of an area's centre between the hours of 5pm and 5am.
Amanda Masters is the coordinator of the Purple Flag partnership for Guildford and said: "Achieving a Purple Flag accreditation for the fourth year is a massive milestone for the town and one that we should all be proud of.
"It sends a clear message to residents and visitors, one that demonstrates how seriously the businesses and organisations involved with our night time economy take safety and best practice.
Local representatives, including Guildford Borough Council, Surrey Police, Surrey Fire and Rescue, Guildford Pubwatch and Guildford Street Angels, have worked to raise Guildford's profile and night-time economy.
This includes reducing alcohol-related crime and disorder and improving visitor safety.
Councillor Graham Ellwood is Lead councillor for Licensing and Community Safety at Guildford Borough Council.
He said: "We’re delighted to hear that our town has once again been successfully accredited with the Purple Flag, recognising the hard work of all our partners to make sure Guildford is a great place for a safe, enjoyable evening.
"From local businesses to taxi marshals, Guildford Pubwatch to the Guildford Street Angels, we all want Guildford to be your number one choice for a good night out in one of our wide range of restaurants, bars, live music venues and theatres."
