The Fort itself is a good way to understand a part of the history of BC through the Hudson's Bay company's past. You can spend a few hours there visiting several houses and putting yourself in the shoes of a trader back in the 19th century. I found the main house the most interesting and rich of accessories, objects or... More

Interesting in that this is the birthplace of the province I lived in for nearly my whole life. I never realized how little I knew about my own home. Very informative and eductional and still fun. Also the written descriptions on the walls are just enough to educate you on the history of the place without being way too long.... More

Love the "Old-style Fort" enclosure - very early pioneer logs etc. One of the best attractions is the old blacksmith forge where they will crank out a souvenir for you -- on the spot. It's great for the kids and oldsters alike. There's a lot of history in the actual fort that's worth learning about the early trappers and farmers... More

Historic Site of Canada. It is considered a federal jurisdiction due to its historic significance. If you want to learn about early life and on the birth of British Columbia, there are plenty of artifacts and story telling of Canadiana (and its heavy British influence). The site is also located in a picaresque rolling hills of Ft.Langley near the Fraser... More

We visited late in the afternoon, with only about 1/2 hour to go round before closing time, but the guides were very good and helped us explore the best bits. The information about the history of the Fort and the people who lived there was fascinating, particularly about the soldiers,traders and first nation people in the area. The little town... More

After a visit to the Greater Vancouver Zoo and on the way back to Vancouver, we decided to swing by Fort Langley National Historic Site. Tired but since we were already in the area, we decided to check it out. Thank goodness we did. What an amazing find. My 3-year old daughter and 6-year old nephew went crazy! Climbing the... More

The site is fairly small but has a lot of information. The fort itself is not the original but it does give you a good look at what life was like in 1827. There always seems to be a blacksmith demonstration going on and I recommend sticking around for that. The blacksmith we talked to was very friendly. He chatted... More

The guide on the tour that we joined was superb, he was full of historical facts that he presented very, very well. The representation of everyday life in a Hudson Bay Trade Post was well done. The visit is good value and the history is presented in an interesting way.
