A nice historical visit in the country. A quiet , realistic experience and a wonderful way to spend an afternoon.
While most of the buildings in Fort Langley's National Historic Site are reproductions (not so the Big House) they give an excellent overview of what the original Fort Langley in the mid-1800's looked like. Costumed docents happily relate tales of pioneer days and give displays of daily life in the Hudson's Bay trading fort, from barrel making to blacksmithing.. Some... More
This attraction seems to be primarily for education as neither the fort (palisades) nor the majority of the buildings within are original or at the original location. However it is staffed by various volunteers, who, dressed in period costume, very ably demonstrate some of the old 19th century skills, such as coopering, blacksmithing, gold panning, and will walk and talk...

We stopped by Fort Langley on a whim and were greeted at the payment desk by a fun, friendly receptionist. She gave us some handy tips on exploring BC, then suggested we head straight to the orientation movie in building 9 before touring the fort. Best. Historical. Orientation. Movie. Ever. The folks at Fort Langley take their jobs seriously with... More
I have visited here three times and really enjoy this one. I love the old town of Fort Langley and have ancestors whom settled in Langley from Wales in the early 1900's! This is the perfect place for tourists and visitors alike.
As a teacher in the lower mainland of B.C. who must cover such curricula, the Fort Langley National Historical Site is a natural for field trips with kids. Historically it is important as the birthplace of the Province and I feel the staff dressed in period costume do a pretty good job of making the olden days relevant for kids... More
Saw this in june, with 2 children in tow. Lots to see and experience there, especially for children. The children enjoyed climbing up to the ramparts amd seeing the furs on display. The balcksmiths shed, and trading building were very nice, as was the governors house. Helps to provide a sense of perspective and history of BC. Lots of useful... More
Although not Parks Canada's premier attraction, it does its job to portray the early European history of this part of the world. Having been here uncountable times, I still enjoy it, as something new is usually afoot. I'm the type to love museums, so it's not the best for device-addicted teenagers who care more about their makeup than world history.... More
My Aunt took us to downtown fort Langley one time while we were on vacation in Langley, BC. It was a beautiful day and got to experience many cool things and see many different things. Last year we went and there was two different weddings and we got to see the brides and grooms and the wedding party. It was... More
Fort Langley is the most important site in Brtish Columbia's history. As a national historic site you know it is a first class attraction. The interpreters/re-enactors are great and there are many buildings to explore inside the fort. This is like a step back in time to the latter half of the 19th century. Some buildings of note are the... More
