  • What a gem of a place! I've been to a lot of historical museums and I have to say that the Brittania Shipyards is one of the most impressive I've seen. I wish that all students learning about Canadian history could have a field trip here, since it touches on several facets of our country's history. If you have the chance to visit, you must see tour the Murakami family home. The story of this family's connection to this site certainly touched my heart. You are so lucky Richmond for having such a beautiful place! Thank you to the volunteers who maintain this fantastic place for all of us to see!
  • I went here during the Mari time festival. I always like looking at some of the old ship building tools they used that looked like they were over 50 years old. The building it self seems like it had seen it's share of history. There also adorable little floating houses by the river, that makes me wonder what it would be like to live there.
  • Historical and beautiful, the Britannia Shipyards is a wonderful place to visit. It has some very well preserved infrastructure and wedding photographers tend to take pictures here because of the amazing variation of backdrops. Although it is little walk from Steveston, it is a wonderful stroll and they open up the buildings for self-guided tours. Can get a little chilly during the spring, but perfect for a summer stroll.
  • Historic shipyards and small houses along the route. It's like a free museum. A unique place, should visit at least once. Ive been 4 times now as it is a nice walk.
  • A lot of local history in a beautiful and accessible setting. It's pleasant to walk the boardwalks and read the plaques, and fascinating to walk into the restored houses, bunk houses, and the boat houses turned museums.
