Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ! time to stop. The centre is like Dr. Who's tardis, small from the outside and somewhat uninteresting. Inside is a different matter - thanks for a great Breathworks weekend in a beautifully calming, safe and welcoming environment. Being close to the shopping arcade and market was a bonus (that I made the most of .... as you do... More

We must go back and experience a little more here. Lovely welcome and an enlightening, welcoming, calming and enjoyable hour. Need to return to be able to review much more, but I would have to say give the trail hour a try. Thank you for such a surprising hour, better than expected and wish I'd known of this some time...

Harder than I had envisaged to find, but really pleased that we did. No shoving religion or philosophy down our throats, we were able to explore it in our own way. We spoke with various people from all walks of life & all ages, buddhist & non buddhist. We tk part in a soothing & calming meditation, looked at many... More

One of the best places to eat in Manchester. The food is healthy and good. The environment is quiet and calm. Exceptional value for money. You leave feeling refreshed.

We did a meditation course and would rate it 10/10, the staff were patient and kind and we looked forward to our weekly meditation. There were a mixture of young and old on our course and I look forward to returning soon. The building is really interesting too, check out the stairs! We haven't tried the cafe yet so can't...

Arrogant and deluded is how the people working in this place come across - with its library consisting mainly of books by the order's founder (with the sexual misconduct allegations rife) and expensive courses. New age for the new age. Go elsewhere.

i feel there's quite a bad atmosphere at the buddhist centre due to unfriendliness of quite a few receptionists/practitionersworking there. i've been really put me off the centre and off buddhism after this experience. theres an air of superiority/pretentiousness/snobbishness which is quite embarassing. i thought this was against buddhist principles.i expected a warm friendly place to relax not cold and...

After a fraught trawl of shops and offices, I staggered into the Manchester Buddhist Centre. The idea was to have a quick cup of tea before heading for home. I got this and much, much more; a serene environment, delicious food, healthy options' a place where everything is organic, ethical and most important of all, restful. I came out of... More

A visit to the Manchester Buddhist Centre is a lovely experience. Walking through the doors into the centre you emmediatley feel that your everyday stresses fall away and be replaced with a feeling of calm as you wonder around. Entering the building you will first stroll around the gift shop with wonderful items at all price ranges. Then you can... More
