Cool stop in Fort Langley

This was not a big place, but interesting for anyone who wants to get to know a bit more about the history of the area or Canada as a whole really.

Visited Mid-January. Weather still cool, but sun was out. Great recreation of 1827 Fort built by Hudson Bay Company where British Columbia was founded. Attention to detail in preservation of buildings and interiors was excellent. Outdoor maple candy station was both historical and tasty. Grounds are very well kept. One could imagine 19th Century French, British, and Hawaiian traders interacting... More

Few weeks ago I went with my friend to the Fort Langley. When we were there I considered to visit the National Historic Site; just the price for the ticket let me hesitate. But my friend convinced me to go by pointing out that the money would help to maintain that site. When I was about to buy the ticket... More

I enjoyed visiting this historic site. It is very educational and gave me a new appreciation for how important Fort Langley was to Canada's development! Having people dressed for the era added to the fun and they are very knowledgeable about what life was like back in that time period - adding additional tidbits of information. It takes a couple...

We went to Fort Langley on Christmas Eve. It was super fun! I didn't think we'd be there very lone, and was surprised when we left almost 3 hours later! They had a scavenger hunt and bingo object search, which my 10 year old loved. It was challenging, and encouraged us to look more closely at the exhibits. The workers... More

We visited this historic site with our young kids and with my grandmother. Each one of us thoroughly enjoyed the experience! I thought we'd take an hour and quickly walk through but we ended up spending over 2 hours without complaints. We all did the audio tour which I recommend as it adds so much more to the experience. They... More

We were there over the Halloween weekend, so there were a few munchkins running around, getting their faces painted, and watching magic shows. But you were still able to enter those buildings, and see a lot. Most of the buildings are not the original ones anymore, but that is no surprise, given that these types of places always seem to...

We attended the early youth friendly Grave Tales Tour and it was Fantastic! Andrew our guide was friendly, funny and creepy all at the same time. The stories are fantastic and the quiet creepy spots they tell them are great. We took my 11 year old nephew and he loved it. Andrew even took the time to hang out with... More
