Do ghostly tales of spirits walking amongst us give you major goosebumps? Us, too – and we love it. We have been meaning to check out Fort Langley’s Grave Tales for several years now. Thanks to an invite from Tourism Langley and Vancouver, Coast and Mountains, we joined a small group for a preview of this year’s tours.
Grave Tales Historic Walking Tours are hosted by Fort Langley National Historic Site. They tell tales of lingering spirits of Hudson’s Bay Company workers who apparently have unfinished business on Earth.
The narrator walks with you, guiding you through cemeteries and sharing hauntingly interesting history of Fort Langley’s people and buildings. The tour ends up at the Fort Langley National Historic Site, possibly the most haunted, eerie part of the tour. Our guide, Aman, shared his own shocking experiences with us; two of the tales even too haunting to tell inside of the building!
So many of our favourite local spots are home to the most fascinating paranormal claims! Remember Little White House? Totally haunted.
This liquor store? Highest employee turnover in the province. Wanna know why? We’re not ruining the surprise! Book a tour! It’s so much fun!

We were treated to dinner at Beatniks Bistro in Fort Langley before we headed out into the night. Here’s a preview of what you can expect at this family-run Fort Langley bistro. One word: AH-MAZING! We will be sharing more about Beatniks with y’all soon, but don’t wait for us. Go there! Their Fall menu is mouth watering and their cozy restaurant is a perfect pre-walk experience.
