Barkerville Historic Town

14301 Highway 26, Barkerville, BC, V0K 1B0

Unlike many gold rush towns from this era - which have long disappeared - Barkerville remains a thriving place, rich in history and full of life.  You can tour the town with one of the colourful characters from Barkerville’s past, watch the notorious Judge Begbie strike fear into the hearts of history’s criminals, witness authentic gold rush theatre, and see a real Cornish Waterwheel in action.  Pan for gold with your family and friends, visit Barkerville’s well preserved Chinatown, and go back to school in the 1800s. 
Stay in one of three bed and breakfasts located within the Barkerville townsite and enjoy food from restaurants or cafes in buildings from a previous era.
