The Betjeman Society

You will remember Sir John Betjeman - Poet Laureate, best-selling poet of the 20th century, journalist and broadcaster, architectural preservationist and campaigner, railway lover, social climber, spy, first TV superstar, comic, eccentric, churchman, doubter ... and much more.

Send us any queries you have about him - we aim to find out the answer if we don't know it already.  Or why not visit the places that meant so much to him, and meet fellow admirers of the man?  Get a taste of our Society, one of the most active literary societies in the UK.  We look forward to meeting you.  Our website will tell you more.
