More on Surrey
Surrey is one of the municipalities within Metro Vancouver. Within Surrey itself are six neighborhoods or “town centres” namely City Centre (Whalley), Cloverdale, Fleetwood, Guildford, Newton and South Surrey.
Surrey was incorporated in 1879. It was named Surrey because its founder H.J. Brewer thought the area looked like his native
Surrey, England. The city grew rapidly in the mid 20th century, serving as a bedroom community for those working in Burnaby and Vancouver. Due to its high population growth, Surrey is expected to surpass Vancouver as the most populous city in British Columbia by 2020 to 2030.
You can reach Surrey by taking the Expo Line Skytrain from Vancouver. The line terminates at King George station. The journey is 45 minutes from the Waterfront Station in downtown Vancouver.
