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.

Meetings cancelled due to Covid-19

We were expecting the meeting room to become available again in September. However, the Scout Association, from whom we rent the room, has advised us that the rooms will not be available until the end of September or early October. Please check back for updates. We will also send updates to the mailing list; if you would like to subscribe, please email us at

Usually we would meet on Thursdays at 7:00pm for meditation and occasional talks by visiting speakers, at Bath Scout Headquarters, 7 Grove Street, Bath, BA2 6PJ.

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.

  • You can discuss your daily practice and share your questions.

  • Long-standing practitioners of various Buddhist traditions are on hand.
