About Langley, BC
Although it has nothing to do with Charles Dickens’ novel, Langley, in its own historically unique way, is also very much a “Tale of Two Cities.”
It all started in Fort Langley, known as “The Birthplace of British Columbia,” and later became part of Langley Township. By 1955, the adjacent area, then known as Langley Prairie, now called Langley City, disagreed with the Township’s governance, and so it separated itself from it. Langley City and Langley Township are still separately run today, but while it was the worst of times back then, today it’s the best of times as these two distinct ‘Langleys’ get along just fine and offer all residents diverse amenities and sustainable living choices.
As its name suggests, Langley City has a downtown core with a variety of shops and condos. Different residential neighborhoods expand out with some condo and townhome buildings, but mainly single-family houses. Langley Township has most of its stores and businesses set along the major routes, plus some clusters of condo buildings, sections of rural properties, and many streets of single-family homes.
Both parts of Langley offer desirable neighborhoods, beautiful parks, convenient shopping, and excellent schools. Langley Township, a population of around 130,000, and Langley City, about 28,000, have community centres, and a mix of restaurants easily accessed by both regions.
Getting to Langley
From Vancouver, BC, Langley is about a 1-hour drive, depending on traffic, and both Surrey and Abbotsford are around a half-hour away. Driving from the Thompson Okanagan area to Langley will likely take you between 3.75 and 5 hours, depending on which roads you choose. If you’re driving from Lynden, WA, and take the Fraser Highway route, your drive time is estimated at just 35 minutes in good road conditions.
Most years, Langley doesn’t get much snow, and the winter temperatures rarely drop below -7°C. Historically, Summers have been comfortably warm with temperatures under 29°C, although July and August can get much hotter for short periods. Those two months are also Langley’s driest ones, with June and September being the next driest months. The rainiest weather is typically in the spring and fall.
You can embrace BC history at the Fort Langley National Historic Site. It’s a fun and informative place for the whole family to learn about the origins of The Hudson Bay Company and fur trading. The beautiful backdrop of the mountains and river only adds to the experience here!
Heritage homes are also a part of Langley’s historic culture! Michaud House, in Langley City, was built in 1888 and was the residence of the first French-Canadian family to live in the region. Another heritage home to consider visiting is the Wark/Dumas House on Glover Road. It began as an early dairy farm… circa 1890. Langley Township land near the Fraser River belongs to Kwantlen First Nation. A popular community college in Langley City is also named for these native peoples.
Fort Langley is a favoured tourist space and fun for residents to explore, too, as it offers unique cafes and boutiques. It’s also a filming location for movies and television shows. Some of the productions shot here include “Sonic the Hedgehog,” “Supernatural,” and “Riverdale.”
Langley is part of School District 35 and provides education for the Township of Langley, the City of Langley, the Matsqui, Kwantlen, Semiahmoo First Nations, and Katzie.
