Join us for a trip to Fort Langley National Historic Site and the town of Fort Langley.

Fort Langley is often referred to as "the birthplace of British Columbia"; here the Hudson's Bay Company established a small trading post to trade with the First Nations. That was in 1827. Fort Langley has since been shaped by history and is now a town and a National Historic Site. At Fort Langley National Historic Site, we'll see a number of buildings, exhibits and character actors that highlight life at Fort Langley in pioneering times.

After we visit Fort Langley National Historic Site, we'll go into the nearby town of Fort Langley for a late lunch. We are going rain or shine!
