The Best Things To Do In Langley

Things To Do In Langley

Langley has been around since 1873, and although often overlooked simply as farm country, it has a lot to offer.

Extending through the Township of Langley, Walnut Grove, City of Langley, and Fort Langley, it’s expanded quite a bit over the last few years. With an ever-growing population and a whimsical, small town feel, it’s hard not to look back once you’ve dipped your feet in.

If theatre is what you’re looking for, Langley has you covered. The Langley Players Drama Club has been around since 1969, and features three productions a year. There is also Bard in the Valley, an annual Shakespearian theatrical production held in Douglas Park and put on by those for a love of theatre. This year, the Bard in the Valley production is going to be the ‘Taming of the Shrew’.

Fort Langley

Langley’s hidden treasure: the ever expanding Fort Langley. A small, quaint, historic village that’s about a 10 minute drive from the heart of Langley, it’s grown tremendously over the last few years. It offers a variety of dining options such as Wendel’s, a bookstore and cafe combined to create the best of both worlds, to Planet 50’s cafe, where everything but the food is retro. There are also a selection of unique shops to choose from, ranging from home decor stores such as Living Room, where you can mix and match pieces to make your home look like a rustic wonderland, to antique stores such as Country Lane Antiques, a vintage store that’s been running for over 25 years. No matter what you’re in the mood for, there’s something for everyone.


Featuring an abundance of wineries, there’s no limit to the flavours you can experience. Among the most popular are Krause Berry Farms (which also doubles as a bakery and berry picking farm), Fort Winery, which produces over 11 different wines, and Chaberton Winery, which has a french bistro connected to it for the ultimate wine and dine experience.

‘Old’ Langley

Also known as the heart of Langley, this part of the town has a certain charm about it. Offering over 500 shops and restaurants, if you really want to catch the old-town feel, head on over. Downtown Langley is also where a lot of events are held, such as the Arts Alive Festival on August 20th, which is a chance for local artists to show off their work, and the Fork and Finger Foodie event, which is happening on August 27th and celebrates the restaurants that are a part of Downtown Langley.
