Beautiful grounds and take the path to the overlook of the Frazier River and valley. It's breathtaking. So serene. The Abbey has unbelievable stained glass windows and the stations of the cross are so unique. Take your camera!

Went for a walk around the grounds and looked at the open view over the valley and Fraser River. Always enjoy the ambiance of the Abbey and always take our out of town visitors.

Luckily I read about Westminster Abbey before we left home as it is open from 1.30-430pm, so we worked it into our schedule. I am so glad we did it is absolutely beautiful and it was awe inspiring to stand and gaze at the windows.It has a very reverent feel and is not to ornate.

A peaceful, serene spot for a nice hike to view the Fraser Valley. Bring your cameras! The church is spectacular and at about 4pm they ring the bells for the call to vespers. Excellent!

Taking a leisurely ride down HWY 7 from Hope towards Vancouver, I was intrigued by the Mission that I could see high up above the highway! So, I stopped in at the Visitor's Centre for information, grabbed a map from the friendly guide, and proceeded to head for a 7 min. ride off my pathway. WOW! The grounds included the... More

A quiet place of contemplation. To hear the Gregorian chant at mass sung there is wonderful even if you are not Catholic. The acoustics add to the specialness of the place

The Abbey is not one of the old and beautiful places you would see in Europe but it is still worth a visit. Wonderful stained glass windows and a Mass )10:00 am on Sundays) that is sung. A different experience but well worthwhile going. There is also a lovely walk to a lookout point where you can see the Fraser... More
