Steveston Heritage Experience in Richmond, BC
Explore Richmond’s past—and savour some delicious treats!
The Steveston Heritage Experience leads you back in time on an interactive walking tour, stopping at four celebrated historic attractions—Britannia Shipyards National Historic Site, the Steveston Tram, the Steveston Museum, and the Gulf of Georgia Cannery National Historic Site. Along the way, you’ll hear eye-opening tales of yesteryear village life, as told by a chatty local who seems to have just stepped from the streets of 1914.
But that’s not all. Carefully chosen food and beverage tastings will be served, offering a taste of life back in 1914—culminating with a popular dish of that day (and today!), delicious seafood chowder from local favourite Pajo's, along with a craft brew from Steveston’s Britannia Brewing. It’s the perfect way to travel back in time while keeping your taste buds fully entertained.
Tickets cost $65 per person + tax, and numbers are strictly limited—book ahead to avoid disappointment.
