Yorktown Battlefield Auto Tour

An affordable companion for touring the Yorktown Battlefield is the audio recording of the Historical Tour available for purchase from the NPS Visitor Center. This is highly recommended and makes it easy to understand each of the tour stops that crisscross the battlefield.

A Self-Guided Driving Tour of the battlefield covers most of the main points and positions of the Colonial and French armies during the siege. Although much of the tour is inside the park, a number of public roads are encountered and extreme caution must be used when crossing these roads as there can be fast moving traffic that visitors might not expect to encounter.

Along the tour are numerous parking areas where you can stop and stretch legs to see the battlefield and positions that once occupied this land. Surrender Field is an especially dramatic area where the actual surrender of arms took place after the battle.
