Mindfulness in London: A Break from the Bustle


As London becomes busier and busier everyday, it’s important to find time to take a break from it all, and get a little headspace. Nowadays life can be so demanding, and it’s important that we take some time to ourselves to reflect and re-align, and that’s where the importance of mindfulness lies. Many centres nowadays offer mindfulness or meditation workshops, and and here are some of our favourite places within the city.

London Buddhist Centre

The London Buddhist Centre is located in East London’s Bethnal Green and is great for mindfulness beginners. They have plenty of workshops and programmes (up to eight weeks long) which focus on managing depression, stress, anxiety and addiction through the practise of mindfulness. If this is something you can’t commit to, then they offer plenty of drop-in meditation classes which can help develop calmness and break negative thought patterns.

Kyoto Garden

Kyoto Garden

For those who seek some mindfulness in nature, the Kyoto Garden is a beautiful Japanese-inspired rock garden located in Holland Park, West London. It has a lovely stone bench which overlooks the colourful blossoms, ponds and a gentle waterfall. This garden also plays host to the first cultivated dahlias in London, and you may be lucky enough to see them if you visit at the right time of year. And if you’re a fan, there are some peacocks roaming around the garden you might spot too.


Bhuti is a new type of eco wellbeing centre that has opened in the heart of Richmond, offering mindfulness classes and workshops – all for Londoners who are looking to recalibrate. They have space to chill out and practise, as well as yoga, pilates and various other holistic treatments. If you get hungry, they have a great vegan cafe to re-energise in.

The Mindfulness Project

Located in Fitzrovia, this is London’s first secular space devoted to mindfulness. Set in a tranquil townhouse in the Fitzroy Square gardens, the centre is home to mindfulness experts who are ready to help you with your mindfulness practise. They offer an 8-week course to help you with dealing with stress better, provide relaxation, and potentially help with further mental or physical health issues.

The Buddhist Temple in Wimbledon

Wimbledon’s Buddhist Temple

This beautiful buddhist temple located in Wimbledon plays host to a variety of meditation and mindfulness workshops, including both longer and shorter workshops. It’s setting is beautiful and has a wonderful surrounding to explore. If you’re new to meditation or just want to get a sense for it, they offer many drop-in sessions you can take part in.
