The University for the Creative Arts is located in Farnham England– a World Craft Town designated by UNESCO. Settlements in Farnham go back to the stone age when the area supported a flint-knapping industry. Farnham has been associated with crafts since AD 100 when the area supplied Roman Britain with pottery. Farnham’s long history as a market town also includes wool, crops, flour, and beer. Although Farnham is especially known for its Georgian architecture, visitors can also visit its Norman castle.
