Langley

View Accommodations

Langley is known as ‘The Community of Communities’ and is comprised of several distinct communities: Aldergrove, surrounded by farming country, is also well-known for its historical flair including second-hand shops and the Telephone Museum; Brookswood, is a residential area with high end shops and eateries; The Downtown is a large shopping area with over 600 shops, services and restaurants; Murrayville is the oldest community and has many historic landmarks; Walnut Grove, Willoughby, and Willowbrook are modern, fast-growing residential communities.

This region is home to the Fort Langley National Historic Site and many of the local buildings are turn-of-the-century architecture with one-of-a-kind boutiques and eateries. The entire region has deep roots in the history of British Columbia’s integration in Canada.

Location

Langley is located in the Fraser Valley, between Abbotsford and Surrey. It is south of the Fraser River, and just north of the United States border. It is approximately 40 km (25 mi) from Vancouver, and can be reached via Highways 1, 1A, 10 and 7. The Golden Ears Bridge connects it via Highway 7 (Lougheed Hwy) to Coquitlam and Maple Ridge on the north of the river. You can access the US/Canada border via Highway 13 in Aldergrove.

A Step Back in Time

“Innes Corners” was the name of the earliest European settlement in the area, named after the homesteader Adam Innes. In 1911, the area became known as “Langley Prarie”.  The area was mainly known as a cluster of farming communities, as it was still under-developed at that time. Soon, owing to its more urban development and related needs, the City decided to separate and incorporate as a separate municipality on March 15, 1955.

Fort Langley is where the colony of BC was first acclaimed 150 years ago during the search for gold on the Fraser River.
