Experience Canadian time travel back in time

Take a walk back through history and experience what it was like to live back in time. A very well preserved facility with period actors bringing it to life.

I am a proud Canadian history buff but this particular site was disappointing. I understand this is supposed to be a sampling of how things were, but it looked totally staged like the pages of a home/decor magazine. One of the buildings looked old on the outside, then was actually a cafe (under construction) with modern amenities. Another building had... More

I'm a lucky traveller, my best friend in the world lives in Fort Langley, so I get to go there on holiday. This year was the first time we actually made it to the Fort (just so much to do). We are the get involved and have fun type of visitors so we got fully immersed in the musket demonstrations,... More

This was a fascinating place to visit but probably very much more interesting for those with an interest in BC's political history. It only scored 'average' to us because we'd just visited Barkerville a few days before, which sets a high standard.

As a European I'm usually underwhelmed by historic sites in North America but I was glad I visited the Fort. There is one original building still standing from the 1830's and the rest of the buildings were built to recreate the original footprint. It's a great place to visit with kids and the history of the settlement of the Fraser... More

It has been many years since our last visit. In spite of it being BC day there was little happening. The displays they have in the old buildings were nice but there was too much empty space and almost no activity A bit dissapointed having visited other Canadian and US forts with extensive displays and everyone dressed in vintage clothing....

An interesting place which showed what life would have been like in the early 1800s for traders. Great for children and adults alike as you can handle the props. Some of the buildings are original, the rest e.g. palisade have been reconstructed. There are talks and demonstrations on throughout the day.

The USA and Canada do not have the same sort of history as Europe and therefore judging this as an historical attraction is difficult. It was good to see how life was lived when the Fort was built but there could have been more information and greater use made of the facility. An interesting visit but not one I would... More

We were visiting from Australia and didn't have any idea of how significant Fort Langley was in the mid 1800's. Entry was very reasonable and if you wished you could hire an audio commentary set. We found we received great incite and more than enough info from the wonderful staff dressed in period costume around the place. I really enjoyed... More
