Having been to Westminster Abbey in the United Kingdom this Benedictine Abbey in Scenic British Columbia pales by comparison. There is a dress code and long lines to visit and walk the grounds.

Wonderful place to just wander around and enjoy the beautiful gardens and the view from the top looking over east Mission. Very peaceful relaxing walk around the grounds.
