After over 50 years of living in BC we decided to enjoy a late summer day and visit Fort Langley, a former Hudson Bay Company trading post. We arrived in time for the various demonstrations. The woman giving the demonstrations was a delight and engaged all her spectators. We got a quick overview of blacksmithing, cooperage (barrel making), and packing... More

We came here with some friends from the area on a recent trip to B.C. The friends hadn't been there in years. We came on the B.C. Day Weekend, and they were doing historical re-enactments. We found it to be very interesting and enjoyable!

We went to Fort Langley National History Site. It was a former trading post of the Hudson Bay Company. There are various buildings and exhibits to see at the fort. There is also a movie. One can self run the movie and select the language (i.e. English, Japanese subtitles, etc.) that they want. They also have events throughout the day.... More

We have two boys under 5, and they enjoyed wandering around. Highlights were the goats & sheep, and climbing the steep stairs to the lookout. Not enough to hold their attention inside if it was a rainy day, but lots of grass to run around on! A ton of pokestops for the Pokemon Go crowd ;)

First visit was 1984 when first returning to Vancouver . . . Then had to take all out-of-town visitors on the tour. . . Parks Canada do SUCH A Wonderful job of making the 1850's experience So Genuine. . . even you American relatives found it an "Eye-opening Experience". . . .!

Enjoyed visiting this fort and attraction. Very nice staff. Their demonstrations added to the visit, I.e. Musket shooting.

We went with my daughter's grade 4 class as a field trip and it was one of the best that I've been on. They had a sort of Amazing Race style challenge for the kids to do and it got the kids engaged and interested in actually learning about the history of the Fort. I thought it was a great... More

This is a very interesting site to visit. It's rather rustic, but it is old, so what else would you expect! It gives you a good idea of how people used to live! Great experience for children as well. Lovely how it lays along the river side. I would recommend the stop is worth it, for all family members.

Well laid out reconstruction of a Hudson Bay trading fort. One original building is still standing. Great value for the whole family. Try panning for gold or book to stay overnight in western tent accommodation.
