It's currently free for 2017, so well worth a visit. The attraction is interesting, do make sure you watch the demonstrations that the staff perform. For those interested in TV filming locations, this is a must!

Enjoyed all of the hands on activities. Great for kids of all ages! Historical and fun! Really enjoyed the scavenger hunt, black smith, and cooper! Cafe is expensive so try any of the eating options along the main strip or side streets in town!

I have been there several times and always enjoyed it. There is a active blacksmith building, the original home of the leader of the Fort. areas outside where they often have native activity displays such as smoking salmon where you get to taste it right off the fire, an indoor "café" where it's done up like the old times but...

We wanted to see a little more of Canada other than Vancouver and the ski resorts, so we took a trip out to Fort Langley National Historic Site, which is a representation of the Hudson Bay Company's trading post, I wont go into detail as their website is far more informative, just to say we had an extremely informative visit,...

I had the privilege of visiting the national historic site in Fort Langley. It is a full and comprehensive accumulation of history detailing the narration of the invasion of the British; the preservation of past culture, trade, and custom. The staff are great, very peaceful, eager to explain every detail and show people around. We also went to the movie... More

This place is nice to step by if it's on your way, but not really worth it if you need a long drive or detour to get to it (IMHO..) Good point though, there's still local people to answer your questions.

Visited Mid-January. Weather still cool, but sun was out. Great recreation of 1827 Fort built by Hudson Bay Company where British Columbia was founded. Attention to detail in preservation of buildings and interiors was excellent. Outdoor maple candy station was both historical and tasty. Grounds are very well kept. One could imagine 19th Century French, British, and Hawaiian traders interacting... More

This was not a big place, but interesting for anyone who wants to get to know a bit more about the history of the area or Canada as a whole really.

Few weeks ago I went with my friend to the Fort Langley. When we were there I considered to visit the National Historic Site; just the price for the ticket let me hesitate. But my friend convinced me to go by pointing out that the money would help to maintain that site. When I was about to buy the ticket... More

I enjoyed visiting this historic site. It is very educational and gave me a new appreciation for how important Fort Langley was to Canada's development! Having people dressed for the era added to the fun and they are very knowledgeable about what life was like back in that time period - adding additional tidbits of information. It takes a couple...
