Allanton World Peace Sanctuary, near Dumfries in South West Scotland, is the European home of the World Peace Society.
After a busy season with hundreds of visitors, we invite you to come and volunteer for our first General Maintenance event of our house and grounds.
Help us to make Allanton more beautiful.
Time to reflect on the old year and pass into the new with meditation and a World Peace Flag Ceremony. Bring along a song or poem or something to share that inspires.

Peace Pole Project
Our Peace Poles are handmade by our small team at Allanton Peace Sanctuary in Scotland and shipped around the world.
Education for peace
15 years ago we began to think about how future generations could find meaning in our global message ‘May Peace Prevail on Earth'
Allanton House is nestled within 18 acres of grounds and woodland. We host events and retreats and welcome visitors to our sanctuary throughout the year.
The World Peace Flag Ceremony is an annual celebration of all the countries of the world, through the symbolism of their flags.
