Welcome to the website of the Anglo-Korean Society.

The Society was founded in 1956 to foster friendship between the UK and the Republic of Korea, and its primary objective is to bring together all those in the UK who are interested in Korean matters.

The Society provides opportunities for contacts between British nationals and Koreans living in Britain, and acts as a forum for social and cultural exchange in an environment of friendship and understanding.
