The Abbey is high above the Fraser River, the monks sing their mass prayers at 10 am Sunday, a must to hear. As you enter on the right is holly water in a waterfall fountain. After the service enjoy a leisurely stroll to a picturesque cliff top, munching on apples growing along the way.

Loved the experience. Such a perfect setting- the Abbey feels likes it's on top of the world. Looking out from monastery affords an amazing view of the Fraser Valley, the farmlands, the lovely greenery. You feel a stillness and peace up there. Amazing to hear the monks chant in the monastery. The lovely coloured stained glass and the height of... More

Great place to check out. This is a very cool place. Take a walk around the Abby as the grounds are amazing. There is a fabulous view of the river from here. Good for the whole family to stretch the legs go for a walk and check out the scene.

This is the must see of London. So much history and a reverence to the building and the lives that are represented there. I attended an organ recital and evening service my first evening into London. It was a huge highlight if my trip to London.

Westminster Abbey is a beautiful, serene, inspiring place to stop in for a walk. The grounds are beautifully kept, and offer at the end of the trail, a gorgeous lookout on the Fraser River.

Not only beautiful, but a solemn and reverent homage to faith. I was fortunate enough to be a part of a group that did a spiritual retreat. Apart from the teachings, and the silence, the location was so amazing to allow one to be still and quiet for once. Away from the noise of the outside world, you can hear... More

The ride up to the grounds is breath taking as it is all up hill. The the structure is not medieval its appeal lies in the concrete walls and ceiling which if you are lucky ...to attend the Vesper's .....religious chants. The Abbey is a teaching facility for those who have been called to the vocation... The grounds are open... More
