Getting here

To get to the Retreat Centre (see map below)

  • Walk up the the driveway which passes on the left of the cloisters. (Do NOT take the driveway which leads into the cloisters or follow signs to the kitchen – as this is not to the Retreat centre kitchen).

  • After the third building you will reach a hedge and see a walkway to the left.
  • Follow this path to the Retreat Centre Kitchen which will be on your right. See map below. 

Registration for Days of Practice will be in the retreat centre kitchen. Please note this is different to the Main monastery kitchen.

Registration for Retreats will be in the Men’s lounge.
