We visited this historic site with our young kids and with my grandmother. Each one of us thoroughly enjoyed the experience! I thought we'd take an hour and quickly walk through but we ended up spending over 2 hours without complaints. We all did the audio tour which I recommend as it adds so much more to the experience. They... More

We were there over the Halloween weekend, so there were a few munchkins running around, getting their faces painted, and watching magic shows. But you were still able to enter those buildings, and see a lot. Most of the buildings are not the original ones anymore, but that is no surprise, given that these types of places always seem to...

We attended the early youth friendly Grave Tales Tour and it was Fantastic! Andrew our guide was friendly, funny and creepy all at the same time. The stories are fantastic and the quiet creepy spots they tell them are great. We took my 11 year old nephew and he loved it. Andrew even took the time to hang out with... More

It was a dark and stormy night....This was the second time that we have take the grave tales put on by Fort Langley historical site. The guide was informative, comical and had the right stuff to make it spooky. I highly recommend this tour if you are looking for some Halloween fun. You just might not sleep that night......

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!
