The Steveston Historical Tour attractions include:

  • The Britannia Shipyards National Historic Site – Visitors step back in time as they tour the community of boatyards, canneries, residences and stores rom a time when fishing and boatbuilding were flourishing industries on the Fraser River.
  • Steveston Interurban Tram – Learn about Tram Car 1220, one of only seven British Columbia Electric Rail operated trams left. Tram Car 1220 tells the story of Richmond’s transportation heritage and how one rail line helped develop the City of Richmond we know today.
  • Steveston Museum – Housed inside Steveston’s first bank and adjacent to the Japanese Fisherman’s Benevolent Society Building, visitors will learn more about the Nikkei history in Steveston.
  • Gulf of Georgia National Historic Site – The tour ends at the Gulf of Georgia Cannery, where visitors will enjoy a guided tour of the historic cannery and learn how the once-thriving fishing industry lured people from vast cultural backgrounds to Canada’s west coast in the late 1800s.

Each attraction will be paired with a culinary tasting. Tastings are subject to change and are designed to fit the theme of each attraction. For instance, visitors will be invited to taste locally crafted artisan sake at Steveston Museum.
