Summer 2022

During a visit to Britannia, visitors can explore the numerous exhibits in site buildings and expect to see costumed interpreters and historical demonstrations from when the site was home to a booming community of workers and their families. In addition to the heritage buildings, visitors are encouraged to be on the lookout for vintage wooden boats moored along the Shipyards docks. On weekends, get down to the docks and see the boats up close. Bring a picnic and enjoy the festival field or numerous picnic tables. 

A fun activity booklet allows kids to discover engaging aspects of various buildings as they play the role of junior boat builder. Participants can pick up the free activity booklet at the front of the Britannia Shipyards building during operational hours. 

Daily guided tours are offered at 11:00am and 2:00pm. Stop by the Administration Office to book, or book ahead here.

Want to get out on the water? Explore the stories and scenery of the Fraser River on a 2 1/2 to 3 hour cruise on the Voyage of the Gikumi. Book ahead here.
