    What to Expect
    Admission to all of Colonial Williamsburg’s historic sites, trade shops and art museums, with complimentary shuttle service and parking, are included in your voucher. 

    A day at Colonial Williamsburg begins at the Regional Visitor Center. Find the latest information on current activities and events and plan your visit to this renowned historical city. Watch the film Williamsburg—the Story of a Patriot for an introduction to the history of Williamsburg.

    From here, it’s a short walk across the pedestrian bridge to life in the 18th century. Colonial Williamsburg covers more than 300 acres, with 88 original 18th-century buildings, plus hundreds of homes, stores and public buildings that have been rebuilt on their original foundations. Meet the townspeople, tradespeople, shopkeepers, political figures, women and the enslaved who call Williamsburg home. Learn about their hopes, struggles and fears in these uncertain times. Explore the challenges of daily life set against the backdrop of revolution and look for opportunities to play a role as a citizen of colonial Williamsburg.

    At the Governor's Palace, enter the years immediately before the Revolution and experience the grandeur of royal government in Virginia just before its collapse. Step into the tumultuous year of 1776 at the Capitol, colonial Virginia’s seat of power. Experience the stark contrasts of freedom and slavery at the house of one of the most prominent families in Virginia at the Peyton Randolph House. Watch a blacksmith take a red-hot iron from the fire of his forge and, with hammer in hand, beat it into a variety of tools, hardware and weapons at Anderson’s Blacksmith Shop and Public Armoury.

    See how and where the residents of Williamsburg made a living. Explore the buildings where revolutionary ideas were born, discussed and disputed. Get an intimate glimpse into 18th-century life with an invitation to enter local homes and gardens.

    Hungry? Enjoy a mixture of restaurants, bars, lounges and cafés, for a historically inspired family meal or an intimate evening of creative cuisine. There are also more than 20 unique stores for the perfect gift, souvenir or addition to any home.

    There are almost 80 buildings in Colonial Williamsburg that you can tour or visit. The times given for many of them are absurd. To see the Palace and grounds is AT LEAST 45 mins and you may have to wait to get in. To see the museum is at leat 2 hours if you run. We just spent 4

    Since we were staying in a Colonial House, having to find the Visitor’s Center to retrieve our tickets was rather inconvenient. Once we had them and returned, the sites were very enjoyable. We saw and learned a lot. Recommend!

    This is an ok place to visit 1 time, but for the price it is someplace we won't be coming back to. You look at buildings and see a few examples of what life was like in colonial times. All 6 of our party was not impressed. We paid almost $400 for 1 day and that was with my dad

    Bought my Colonial Williamsburg tickets on line about 2 months in advance of our trip then learned that those tickets were useable until the end of the year. We went to Colonial Williamsburg every day of our visit. Slick way to by-pass the lines and slide right through the
