London Heritage Farm

London Heritage Farm is located near Steveston, along the dyke on the south end of Richmond. This farm house has more than 100 years of history.

Today, the London Heritage Farm is a historic site of Richmond and is also a tourist attraction.

You can visit this farm and imagine how life was 100 years ago at this location.

When you enter the farmhouse, you will be greeted by friendly staff members who guide you for afternoon tea or have a tour of the farmhouse. Entrance is by donation and the proceeds go towards the maintenance of the historic site.

I am not a historian but these furniture and kitchen appliances do look very old to me.

Since we are here, we decided to give their afternoon tea a try. We were guided to this living room that is now converted to a tea room :)

These sure look like nice porcelain tea sets inside the cupboard.

Here it is, a fancy looking tea set ^^;

This tea is called the London Lady Tea. You can purchase packages of this tea at the gift shop of the farm house.

Along with the London Lady Tea, we were provided with a couple scones and some desserts.

This is probably my favourite seat of the tea room.

The warm afternoon sun makes drinking tea a wonderful pastime.

After having tea and desserts, we took a tour around the other parts of the farm house.

Hope you enjoyed the brief tour of the London Heritage Farm. You can find more information about this historic site here:

    Hi Kam. Great pics as always. Im a Nikon user and consider switching to Canon gears. Are L lenses worth the the price ?

      hi Howie, why are you switching to Canon? Just curious.. As for your question of L lens, I think it depends on your usage. There are lots of excellent L lenses. From my experience, they hold value pretty well so even when you sell them later, you don’t usually lose a lot (depending on the condition of course). That said, there are good regular lens as well, for example the EF-50 f1.4 is an excellent lens for the price (around $450), the L equivalent EF-50 f1.2L would be 3 times as much…. So it really depends what you look for in a lens. I have a couple of L lenses as well and I really like them. If I have the $$, I would tend to go for the L lenses.

    I see.. Thanks for your opinion Kam. I really need to do more video work now so I’m looking into Canon. I know the D7000 just came out and I have yet to play with one so that’s also in the consideration. I recently rented a 5Dmk2 for work and just fell in love with it.
