The Fort where British
Fort Langley National Historic Site1
Why locals love it
Fort Langley is a lovely place to visit to entertain your kids or learn some history. It is located beside the cafes and boutiques of the Village of Fort Langley. It is nice to stroll the grounds, watch the blacksmith work, or sit by the campfire in the evening.
Why you should visit it
The fort is a re-creation of the Hudson Bay Company trading post on the Fraser River. One of the building does date to 1840. You will learn little-known history of the area and see how the traders lived and worked. There are many hands-on activities for the young and young of heart.
It was here that James Douglas read the proclamation that created the Colony of British Columbia in 1858. The Audio guide is worth getting.
