Woodbrooke Quaker Study Centre

Description

Woodbrooke is Europe's only Quaker Study Centre, offering adult education since 1903, set in organic gardens, which supply some of the food served to guests.

Here you can:

  • experience short courses on personal spiritual growth, theology, creative arts, and training for Quaker roles
  • hire out our elegant meeting rooms for conferences
  • stay with us for bed and breakfast.

Situated in a Grade 2 listed Georgian mansion, we provide education to those of any faith or none. We also offer B&B year-round, so why not take a short break at Woodbrooke to relax and unwind? You will be sure to enjoy the tranquil surroundings – 10 acres of organically-managed gardens, including a lake complete with rowboat.

Whether you choose to pursue your own reflections here, or join a retreat or spiritual weekend from one of the many in our course programme, you will find Woodbrooke the perfect oasis of calm and simplicity. We are within easy reach of Birmingham city centre as well as local and national transport links.

Woodbrooke encourages visitors to travel by public transport. If you would like to help Woodbrooke reduce its carbon footprint by investing in renewables, and link it to your travel here, we suggest a minimum donation of: 1p per rail-mile or bus/coach-mile; 3p per car mile; 7p per air-mile. There is a donation box in our reception, alternatively donate online and mark your donation as 'green travel'.
