Surrey Things to Do
Located in the western part of Surrey's "Whalley" neighborhood, is the St. Mary Coptic Orthodox Church. This beautiful Ukrainian style church, was built by Surrey's Ukrainian community. The land was purchased in 1947, and the church was completed in 1955.Although the church was built to resemble a Ukrainian church, it serves not only the Ukrainian...more
Green Timbers is a really pretty and quite large local city park. There is a pond where you can fish. Lots of walking trails. A nice getaway from the bustle of the city.**Please don't feed the ducks**1. It prevents ducks from getting appropriate nutrients (white bread is a no-no)2. It makes the ducks dependent on people3. Left-over food attracts...more

Sister to the Mahek Restuarant and lounge in Surrey, the Chaat House offers a wide range of South Indian vegetarian snacks, ideal for those who do not want a full meal. Its decor is very basic, but the staff and owners are very helpful and will guide you so you will select something you will certainly enjoy. I am generally the only non Indian in...more

The Grande is the nicest place to see a movie in Surrey. The seats are large and recline.
Dress Code: Anything goes
Surrey, along with the rest of Vancouver, is a very diverse city. One of the largest culture groups in the city, are the Poles, so it's no surprised that there are several Polish stores located in Surrey. The best one in my opinion, is Krakus Deli located in Whalley.
The deli was opened in 1993, and the lady who owns it is a real Pole. We were speaking Polish with her the whole time. Unlike the American and Canadian super market, that sell their versions of Polish food, this deli sells 100% authentic Polish food.
We bought some meat, sausages, bread, coffee, pastries, jello, and chocolates. We paid around $40 for everything, but for so much stuff, it wasn't a bad deal, and the lady was really nice, and gave us 10 buns for free.
This is probably the best Polish deli in Surrey. We went to another deli, but the owner was a jerk.
If you're looking for authentic Polish food, with friendly staff, Krakus is the place to come.
What to buy: Polish sausage, meat, coffee, soup, bread, buns, pastries, cookies, sandwiches, spices, and Poland's famous alcohol chocolates.Related to:

The town of Surrey designs its own humorous t-shirts, mostly making fun of Whalleyhood, which Surrey doesn't like. The residents of Surrey than wear shirts that say "Surrey keeps on makin' it, Whalley keeps on takin' it", or "Surrey Hates You", in Whalleyhood, or other areas of the city that they hate, to *** off the locals. They also have shirts for the residents of Whalleyhood, mocking Surrey, like “RUN SRY“, and “Whalleyhood“ instead of Hollywood.
The t-shirts may seem like harmless fun, but the rivalry between Surrey and Whalley, is very serious, and sometimes violent.
I had my cousin send me one of these shirts, but I don't know if wearing them in the neighborhoods they are mocking is a good idea. I wouldn't want to provoke the local thugs, though some locals do. They were more meant to be harmless gag shirts, but some people don't have a sense of humor, and take them way too seriously.
Not all the shirts are mocking Whalley though. They also have a cool UFO shirt, and Whalleyhood shirt, which are not offensive.
Surrey Warnings and Dangers
Surrey isn't exactly the safest area of Vancouver. It can be scary walking through some areas even during the day, let alone at night. There are a lot of shady characters in Surrey. We've never had anyone bother us during the day, but my cousin has a really bad habit of walking around at night. He has been beaten, robbed, and pepper sprayed on...more

Yes, carjacking is a serious problem in Surrey, as in most of Canada. My cousin and uncle have lived in Surrey for most of their lives, and they have both had their cars stolen. It's so common, that the cops don't even do anything, since the car is usually found abandoned somewhere, a day or 2 later.We had our car broken into, in front of my...more
