Peterborough Quakers

Return to Gallery ->


A still pool of quiet in a restless city, with a large, beautiful and peaceful garden. The Meeting House and its garden are an oasis of tranquility. Parts of the garden symbolise the Quaker testimonies of Peace, Truth, Equality, Simplicity and Sustainability. The garden's labyrinth offers the opportunity for prayerful walking and contemplation.

Standard opening times:

The garden may be visited at any time as a space for personal reflection and meditation. We welcome people who would like to visit our garden, and spend a quiet (not silent), enjoyable time with us.(Please note that any group using the Meeting House has the use of the garden, so please respect their privacy.)

Contact the hospitaller for details of events and opening times of the Meeting House. For details of events during the year, which anyone is welcome to attend, also see the ‘Events’ section of the website (see below).
