A great historic site - really good introduction video giving a good overview of the history in an original/interesting way. Well laid out and explained in the pamphlet that you get when paying for admission. We didn't pay extra for the audio tour - and it was just fine. Reasonably priced.......highly recommended tourist attraction.

It had been a long time since I toured the Fort in Langley. It is very beneficial for the children and grand children to learn about the first colony of British Columbia. It is very special to know the the Hudson's Bay company played a big role. It would be interesting if one of my cousins who was very involved... More

Lovely historical site. Considerate planning as all of the buildings on the site have steps and ramps. Family friendly with not only staff demonstrations but activities for children. Plenty of places to sit on the grounds, a cafe is to open in the future. Reasonably priced for seniors.

This attraction seems to be more geared towards kids. I had been looking forward to learning about the rich history of the area and was a little disappointed in the lack of information boards and artifacts that they had. There are people dressed in costume inside some of the buildings. It looks as if there are tents/yurts to rent on... More

A great place to bring your guests to show the history of B. C. We liked the shop where you can see a blacksmith making an iron bar like how they do it during the olden days. And another shop where they show how to make a barrel. Very interesting. Don't forget to stop by the schoolhouse inside and dress... More

Fort Langley played a pivotal role in the history of British Columbia. Our visit here gave a clear insight into the development of the important region of British Columbia. That might sound serious and uninteresting but the use of the rebuilt fort and buildings made history come to life in an entertaining way. Much is done for the kids but... More

As 2 Aussies we found the handheld commentaries excellent without being too long. Staff were also very enthusiastic and helpful. We may have been fortunate to visit early Sept without any crowd or coach groups. We left with a good concise account of the fur, salmon, gold and Hudson Bay Trading Co etc activities as related to the establishment of... More

We went on a summer week day afternoon. There was a day care their but, other than that, it was fairly quiet. Consequently, we could take our time talking with all the 'characters' on the grounds and in the buildings. Everyone was well educated about the history and past activity of the Fort. I went with my parents and my... More

Our family has visited Fort Langley several times. We make sure to take visiting guests to this great historic site. It's like walking through another era. The staff are dressed in period costumes giving displays and talks on various topics. The blacksmith is so entertaining and will even let the children participate. This is a great fun learning experience. After... More
