I spent the morning at Fort Langley Historical Site, which include the train station and the town of Fort Langley. Very charming little town for a relaxing weekend and surprise visit to the local stained class studio and organic shop!

This historical site was an interesting insight in to the lives of the settlers who arrived there and how they worked with the first nations people in trading etc. They had very informative staff giving demonstrations of blacksmith's working, woodwork and firearms of the times. Unfortunately not all the houses were open while I was there but that was not... More

We've had an annual pass for the past two years. It's a great deal, and the kids love coming here. The kids love gold panning, pretending to be blacksmiths, in the summer the animals, and picking food from the garden. If you have a chance book a night in the otentik's. BOOK EARLY!!! We missed our chance this summer and... More

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
