About Visit Surrey
Visit Surrey is a Community Interest Company (CIC) launched in 2011.
We are the county destination management organisation, showcasing the tourism and visitor economy of Surrey. We aim to promote Surrey as a visitor destination and highlight all the fantastic things to do, events, places to stay and where to eat and drink in Surrey. Our simple aim is to grow the visitor economy of Surrey, to encourage sustainability and to work as part of the Surrey community.
We are a social enterprise, not for profit. All income generated is invested back into the company to grow our activities and to ultimately reach our aims of growing the visitor economy of Surrey.
Visit Surrey is an independent organisation working in partnership with organisations across Surrey, including; Surrey County Council and local authorities; Mole Valley District Council, Reigate & Banstead Borough Council, Runnymede Borough Council, Guildford Borough Council, Waverley Borough Council, Woking Borough Council, and Surrey Heath Borough Council.
We also work with local relevant organisations such as the University of Surrey and the Royal Holloway University of London, the two national tourist boards, Visit England and Visit Britain, the two LEP’s in Surrey; Coast 2 Capital and Enterprise M3, as well as the Surrey Hills AONB, the BID company for Guildford town centre; Experience Guildford, plus Film Surrey, Creative England, Tourism South East and Visit Guildford.
We believe that working together in partnership with like-minded organisations benefits us all and ultimately allows us to promote Surrey tourism to a wider audience.
Visit Surrey CIC is governed by a board of non-executive directors who meet quarterly to review, discuss and steer the CIC to achieve its aim.
We are a very small organisation with just three part-time staff, plus a supportive tourism focused Chairman and directors.
Kevin Lorimer - Chairman
Christine Howard – Strategic Director
Anna Tomkins – Project Manager
Alison Stocker – Website Administrator
