About The London Buddhist Centre

The London Buddhist Centre is at the heart of a varied and vibrant community of Buddhist practitioners in East London. We teach Buddhism and meditation in a way which is relevant to contemporary life. We host regular retreats at our rural retreat centre in Suffolk. See our full schedule.

In addition we run daily yoga classes, regular events for families, classes and retreats for sub-25s and people of colour, and evenings with well known artists at PoetryEast. Our Centre in Bethnal Green, also hosts school visits, Buddhist festivals and runs two charity shops.

We are open Monday-Saturday, 10am-5pm. Drop in to look around the Centre, or to join a meditation class. We're also continuing to offer a number of events online.

The London Buddhist Centre is a registered charity and runs on generosity. All of our class and retreat leaders are volunteering their time and those who work full-time at the centre are supported according to their needs rather than paid a wage.

We want to move from a culture of exchange to a culture of generosity, providing our activities on a donation basis wherever possible. Do consider supporting us in this transforming work by making a donation. Thank you.
