Fort Langley National Historic Site Tours

Fort Langley National Historic Site
Established by the Hudson’s Bay Company in 1827, this former fur-trading post is often called the birthplace of British Columbia, because Sir James Douglas declared British sovereignty over the region from here during the Fraser Canyon Gold Rush. Now a National Historic Site, the fort attracts history buffs and families.
 
The Basics
Fort Langley National Historic Site is packed with things to see and do. Take a tour with a costumed guide, watch blacksmithing or boat-building demonstrations, and try your luck at panning for gold. Audio tours of the site are also available.
 
Families will find a dedicated children’s play area, a wardrobe full of period garb where kids can play dress up, and farm animals (summer only). Between May and mid-October, visitors can stay overnight in tent-cabins.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • For Langley National Historic Site is a must for families, with lots of live demonstrations and fun interactive activities. 
  • The fort’s visitor center has a reception area, gift shop, educational exhibits, and washrooms.
  • The site is wheelchair accessible, with paved pathways connecting the various buildings.
 
How to Get There
Fort Langley is situated 40 to 45 minutes east of Vancouver. Follow the Trans-Canada Highway 1 and take exit 66. Free parking is available at the site.
 
When to Get There
The best time of the year to visit is summer, when the fort hosts a wide range of interpretive events and activities. Peak visitor hours are between 11am and 3pm; this is also when most demonstrations take place. Come in late afternoon to avoid the biggest crowds.
 
Explore Fort Langley
Though the fort is the main attraction, the quaint town of Fort Langley is well worth exploring, too. Sitting on the edge of the Fraser River, the town is packed with quaint old buildings housing boutiques, cafés, and restaurants. Together with the fort and the wineries of Fraser Valley, it makes an appealing day out from Vancouver.
