Buddhist Centre in Walworth

The Kagyu Samye Dzong London Tibetan Buddhist Centre is hidden in an unassuming brick building in Manor Place, SE17 (off the Walworth Road). If you are in the area of an afternoon and want some peace and tranquility, they welcome visitors. The picture is of the shrine room.

The Manor Place building once housed the municipal baths for the area. The Buddhist Centre itself may be moving to a building elsewhere in South East London which they are in the process of buying.

The new Kagyu Samye Dzong centre is up and running at 15, Spa Road, Bermondsey, SE16 3SA. There is still alot of work to do but it is already magnificent.

Good news is that they will continue to run the Walworth.Manor Place centre until such time as the council gets round to redeveloping the site (which could be years), so this will continue to be a place of peace and tranquility in Walworth for some time to come
