The Surrey Advertiser is a newspaper for Surrey, which was established in 1864. Guardian Media Group sold the paper to current owner Trinity Mirror in 2010. The head office is in Stoke Mill, Guildford.
The primary newspaper is the weekly Surrey Advertiser itself with seven regional versions (Guildford, Cranleigh, Godalming, Woking, Elmbridge, Leatherhead, and Dorking). The group also produces other, more local, series including the Aldershot News & Mail series. The Surrey Advertiser, along with the Woking News & Mail, used to be owned by Surrey and Berkshire Media a branch of the Guardian Media. However, The Surrey Advertiser and associated papers were sold to Trinity Mirror in April while the Woking News & Mail and Review series are the only regional paper that remain with the Guardian Media Group. The Surrey Advertiser and all related Trinity Mirror Southern titles are edited by former BBC journalist Marnie Wilson.
