The Bhutan Society of the United Kingdom

Welcome to the Society!

The Bhutan Society of the United Kingdom is for people who wish to develop knowledge and understanding of the Kingdom of Bhutan - and to encourage cultural and educational links between the peoples of the United Kingdom and Bhutan.

It links together people who are interested in, or who have connections with, the Kingdom of Bhutan.

Via a series of talks through the year, an annual dinner and a newsletter, members stay in contact with developments in Bhutan, with Bhutanese resident in the UK and with each other.

Please browse the website and read back issues of the newsletter to discover more.
