About Bodhisattva KMC Buddhist Centre in Brighton and Hove

Bodhisattva Kadampa Buddhist Meditation Centre, based in Brighton, East Sussex, is a special place of tranquility, rest and reflection. It is home to an international Kadampa Buddhist community of 30 lay and ordained residents who share a wish to make their lives meaningful by finding lasting peace and happiness from within and helping others to do the same.

The Buddhist centre is open to the public and offers a variety of Buddhist meditation classes, day courses, and weekend meditation retreats that are suitable for beginners and more experienced meditators. For those attending our weekend courses, we also offer comfortable single, twin, and dormitory accommodation.


The centre is located within two acres of quiet leafy grounds and is a haven of peace in the city of Brighton. We are just a few minutes walk from local parks and the sea front and a short drive from the South Downs National Park – an area of protected countryside and natural beauty. There is something here for everyone – so come and visit!

For those visiting from overseas, the closest major airport is London Gatwick (about 30 minutes by train). Brighton has excellent public transport links and is only 60 minutes from London by train.
