Self guided Adult Agriculture History & heritage Photography Tour

Every year, in honour of Heritage Week in BC, The Historic Stewart Farm leads a Heritage Sites Bus Tour in Surrey, featuring different neighbourhoods and sites each year. This tour is a portion of a past tour for you to try yourself. You can simply explore from your home by visiting the links under “More Info” or by watching the Google Earth presentation. Or you can click on the Google Maps link and drive the route yourself. Please be sure to respect private property as well as all traffic laws. This edition we feature a 14km route of a portion of Whalley. From the first reforestation project in BC to residential houses in industrial neighbourhoods to neon signs, you’ll get a taste of the wide variety of heritage places that exist in Surrey. Below there are two buttons to the Tour Guide and the Driving Tour Map, be sure to print both before heading out on the tour.

This event runs the duration of Culture Days.

Organized by

City of Surrey, Heritage Services

The City of Surrey Heritage Services Department runs various parts of Heritage within the City of Surrey, including Heritage Collections, Surrey Archives, Re-enactors, and Historic Stewart Farm. The mandate of our division is to share the diverse history of the Municipality of Surrey with our community. Our vision is to create a better community that reflects on the past. Recently as part of our shift towards online programming these institutions have begun to focus on digital and remote programming, instead of in person interpretation. This program is based off of our driving tours, usually on a bus, held with the public seasonally.
