This is a lovely centre just situated down a side street in central Manchester. I am not a Buddhist but visited to ask about meditation classes. They advertise classes and events in the centre and have leaflets just outside the door.

I love that there is always a different option every time I come here. Hot whole foods for cold days and fresh salads for during the summer! Its hard to get good Vegan food in a lot of places and they really know how to deliver on quality.

Lovely place, every time I'm around is always a good feeling of peace. It could be noisy (during drop-in sessions), but it's part of nature, you need to silence the environment and focus in your love. Great people at reception and instructors!

I attended the Buddhist centre while on a conference in Manchester. They offer daily meditations for the public, which was precisely what I needed. The centre is very open and welcoming. A nice vegetarian restaurant and interesting bookshop. As Buddhist visiting the city, I felt right at home!

A lovely space right in the heart of the Northern Quarter. Great place to try out meditation techniques. Friendly, sound people to be found here in abundance. Really good energy in the place. A real jewel in the heart of Manchester.

You can easily miss this little hotspot of an eatery as it is down the back streets of Manchester but it is definately worth seeking out. The food is delicious and it is all vegetarian or vegan. It has a most appealing calming atmosphere and it is always a delight to visit this little gem.
