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

Displays: dirty, disorganized Cafe: nothing there except tables Empty buildings, zero exhibits in exhibit hall, 3 staff people on staff I live in Fort Langley. The best thing... More

Beautiful location, excellent examples of times gone by in time-lapse buildings. Knowledgeable staff, always ready to explain and show off their skills. May not be appropriate for the very young but grade 7 onwards should learn and enjoy as well as us oldies.

Love wondering around the fort, Specially like watching the demo in the Blacksmith building and watching them build the barrels. We have been there lots of times but still always entertaining.

Loved this site. Informative and helpful staff and really interesting. Nicely presented and spacious. Sadly the cafe wasn't open on a baking Saturday in June which to me was missing a trick. Also some lovely show in the town.

Touristy but delivered well; see it before Fort Langley losses it charm as there are developments that are impacting the softness of this little village and the flavor and feel will not return once the developers are finished - it is barely retained as we speak. Pity
