Bath Buddhist Group


The Bath Buddhist Group was established over forty years ago and aims to promote an interest in Buddhism and to encourage its study and application. We welcome all who are interested in Buddhist practice and teachings, whether you are new to Buddhism or have an established practice, and whether you subscribe to a particular tradition or not.

We meet on Thursdays at 7:45pm for meditation and occasional talks by visiting speakers, at Bath Scout Headquarters, 7 Grove Street, Bath, BA2 6PJ.

Upcoming meetings cancelled due to Covid-19.

Instead of meeting on Thursday evenings, we suggest meditating at home at 8 o’clock as normal. Instead of walking meditation, try a Metta practice; and finish with wishes for the well-being of all people.

Please check back for updates.

See the meetings page for more dates and further details.

With the Bath Buddhist Group you’ll find a community where:

  • You can meditate in a supportive environment.
  • You can join others in developing your understanding and application of the Buddha’s teaching.
  • If you wish, you can discuss your daily practice and share your questions.
  • Long-standing practitioners of various Buddhist traditions are on hand.
