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.
