Tours and Activities

Engage with Your Surroundings

Your visit to the Revolutionary City isn’t complete without the freedom to explore. We invite you to join us on one of more than 20 guided and self-guided tours—included in your admission ticket—offered daily. Enter into the homes and gardens of Williamsburg’s 18th-century residents, get a firsthand perspective from a curator, or see the city by foot on a walking tour.

Orientation Walks

Start your visit to the Revolutionary City with an informative walk designed to help you create your firsthand adventure. In addition to an overview of modern wayfinding, dining, and shopping options, you’ll get your first glimpse at a town on the edge of Revolution and war and learn of the many ways to engage with your fellow citizens—our interpreters.

Tour the City

See inside famous residents’ homes, like that of George Wythe, or explore the Capitol, where a successful vote initiated American independence.
