Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

Fort Langley National Historic Site has been on my radar for a number of years. When I was attending college at what was then UCFV, I’d drive by the highway information sign and occasionally think to myself, “I wonder what’s there? Is it worth a visit?” And then continue on my way. In short, a visit to the site was something of a passing fancy. A keen and focused interest didn’t return to my head until the summer of 2021 when I began “discovering” BC’s historic “Gold Rush Trail.” Fort Langley was an important stop on “Leg 1” of the journey; thus, in order to complete the route, a visit to Fort Langley – designated a National Historic Site in 1923 – was needed and necessary.

M and I were heading towards Langley to watch a titillating film at the Colossus Cinema (I refuse to just call it “Cineplex”). We had plenty of time to kill before the evening showing and, since the weather was nice, we decided to patronize the National Historic Site. Being the off-season, it was pretty quiet, but I didn’t mind. The lack of activity gave the site a serene calm. Approaching the tall timber palisades and bastions, the excitement was palatable. Not only were we entering an important part of the Gold Rush Trail, but this was also the very site where British Columbia was proclaimed a British colony (1858). Curiously, it’s not that there was anything particularly important about Fort Langley that gave it this distinction (the proclamation of a colony); it was more a matter of convenience: James Douglas happened to be stopping by en route to speak to some Americans.

Of course, that’s not to downplay the historic significance of Fort Langley to the formation of this Province. When the fort was established in 1827, it was an integral fur trading post and, later, it served as the staging point for the gold prospectors hoping to strike it rich during the gold rush boom. The Fort also played an important role in establishing the 49th parallel as the boundary between Canada and the United States. Thus, one should not underestimate this site.

Of the buildings on site, only the storehouse is an original edifice. Everything else is a re-creation, built by Parks Canada in the late 1950s; however, this definitely does not detract from the experience. The site feels authentic, in no small part thanks to the interpretive guides dressed in period authentic garb. When we visited, there were only a handful of people on site, but this was probably due to it being the quiet season. Nevertheless, those we did engage with were quite informative and helped better contextualize what you were looking at.

Whether you’re a history buff, or just looking for something interesting to do, Fort Langley National Historic Site is well worth the stop. It’s informative, engaging and fun – like stepping into a time machine. We spent nearly an hour and a half on site, though I’m sure it’s possible to spend much longer here!

Took an unworthy ME in-law to this historic landmark to showcase an iconic lifestyle embedded in our past. A great place to visit and a tourist destination to relive a time since past.

Love the Grave Tales Tour- they do a wonderful job. We've been on them before, and it never disappoints. If you are lucky enough to get Ahman (Sorry about the spelling). He is an amazing story teller who keeps you paying close attention. We particularly enjoy the the extended 3 hour adult tour. Be prepared for a good walk and dress appropriately for the weather.

I went to the extended version of the Grave Tales tour and absolutely LOVED it. The guide was incredibly engaging and knowledgeable and while I'm quite familiar with the area and some of the stories, I still found that I was learning new things. The tour is a long trek but that time went by so fast for me and I cannot wait to go back next year.

Fort Langley National Historic Site is a great place to learn about the history of Langley and to be outdoors with the family.

Outdoors, you can climb the bastions and enjoy a self guided audio tour.

There is an outdoor park with picnic areas and washroom facilities.

From now until October 8th, you can also enjoy a camping oTENTik experience.

A great family experience.

We took our two grown daughters and our grandson to see the fort. We were glad to see that the attraction was open to the public. We were advised that wearing a mask was advised although not mandatory. There were not many visitors, but the ones that were there all were wearing their masks when in a close environment There was a fairly large group of day-care children also visiting the fort that also carried their masks. The Blacksmith was very informative regarding the need of a blacksmith to the fort and gave us a demonstration in the making of a decorative coat hook. Unfortunately most of the buildings were closed but the woman at the Cooperage was able to teach us the bases of barrel making. I tried my luck at the gold panning sluice-way, but didn't get any richer. All in all, it was a very relaxing and enjoyable day with lots of free parking and a modest entrance fee. After we had the treat of going to the Fort Langley Pub for a brew and lunch.

This location is not actually where the fort stood. It is a fake building too. The interpreters here are utterly useless and laughable. The interpretation coordinator has done a good job of hiring her friends and family instead of people actually qualified. This is nothing new for something bearing that pathetic maple leaf - the universal symbol of corruption, waste, and incompetence.
