County Tourism wishes to thank our community and guests for
their patience and understanding as we have navigated
through the COVID-19 crises. While our state has lifted many
restrictions, and most local businesses and attractions are
now moving toward more "normal" operations it is
important to remember that the mandate for face coverings
and social distancing remains in place. We advise all our
guests and local supporters to exercise care - for your own
health and safety, as well as that of our community - as you
shop, dine and explore in Surry County. The Surry County Visitors Center
remains closed to the public.
Surry Visitors Center
Clerk's Office"(one of the oldest buildings in Surry
- circa 1825) houses the new Surry Visitors Center. The
Center is open Mon-Fri 10am-3pm, and most Saturdays 10am-3pm.
Located at 267 Church Street, Surry, VA 23883.
Inside, visitors can see many of the attractions available
to visit in the County along with a timeline of the County's
of the James
from south of the
Surry County is located across the
James River from the historic sites of Jamestown, Williamsburg,
and Yorktown. It is centrally located between Richmond,
the tri-cities, and Hampton Roads.
A 15-minute free ferry ride across the James
provided by the Virginia Department of Transportation, provides
a unique view of the land. It's not hard to imagine what
the first colonists experienced as they traveled on the
same river 400 years ago.
