If visiting Mission this is the place to go for a beautiful overall view of Mission & the Fraser River. It's just a short, easy walk to access the view. The Abbey is also a quiet, peaceful place to visit and worth taking 1/2 hour of your time to see.

Follow the path to the lookout , sit on the bench ( if someone hasn't beat you there)and enjoy the beautiful view of the river and the valley. You could sit here for a long time as it is a great spot to ponder life or anything else, a very peaceful place.

The Abbey Church is spectacular. Awesome stained glass and bas-relief images. But the walk - around the grounds and along the bluff, overlooking the Fraser River, that is the best! Stay for Vespers if your can.

This is a lovely quiet peaceful place with a modern chapel that has coloured glass windows, arranged to go with the time of day sun hits them. Nice walk to view point over Fraser river. Gardens were a bit weather battered, as it was end September.

The place fills you with reverential awe. A must visit if you are in the area. The gardens are beautiful and the art in the abbey is inspiring. The stained windows are colored according to the seasons.

We attended in Sept, the dahlias still in flull bloom and very beautiful which the students/monks take care of in the gardens. The walk to the most amazing view takes 15min and very nice scenic walk on a wide trail, most any age can do it but mostly soft gravel or dirt. You will see Mt. Baker, Fraser River and... More

The Westminster Abbey at Mission is a "Must" visit if you are anywhere in the vicinity. The abbey itself is a fairly modern structure and is not too impressive, but the setting and location are everything. The gardens are magnificent. We visited in August and the dahlias were the biggest and most beautiful we have ever seen. We took the... More

If you have a chance, visit the Abbey in Mission. It's a rather modern style church but has some fantastic stained glass. And there is a little walk (about 5 mins) that takes you to a view above the Fraser River. Spectacular even on a cloudy day - you can see for miles.

Stunning architecture, set in a park-like garden overlooking the Fraser River. The dramatic lighting from the tinted glass windows created e serene aura.
