Meditation retreats in the UK 


What to expect:

Are there different types of meditation retreats in the UK?

You'll be pleased to know that there are many types of meditation retreats in the UK!

Whether finding your inner voice on a silent retreat or reconnecting within on a healing journey, yogis can choose from a diversity of wellness holidays.

While each one is firmly rooted in the traditional Buddhist teachings, the methods might differ depending on the meditation type and retreat centre you choose.

How do I find a meditation retreat centre in the UK?

From the rolling hills of the Scottish Highlands to England's picturesque woodlands, the UK is home to hundreds of yoga and meditation centres.

Although tucked away, these restorative centres can be easily found on an online marketplace, like Basubu.

By simply searching for the type of wellness retreat you're looking for and your preferred location, you'll find dozens of meditation centres in the UK. 

How does a meditation retreat work?

Like a charm!

A meditation getaway typically features daily guided meditation sessions and outdoor activities that are intended to calm the mind, body and soul.

Meditation classes are usually performed in a peaceful ashram or outside in nature. In such a tranquil environment, your thoughts are still and the mind has space to reflect and heal.

If you are a beginner, you'll study the teachings behind the Buddhist tradition in workshops and discover how to meditate using various yogic breathwork techniques and mind-body exercises.

For advanced practitioners, a meditation retreat is an ideal opportunity to deepen their practice in a new setting.

Your guide to meditation retreats in the UK


Where to go in the UK

Now and then, you just need a break from the endless stream of emails and constant stresses of everyday life.

Mindfulness meditation has become a popular practice for stress relief and relaxation, with retreats popping up in all corners of the countryside and along coastlines to offer some respite. 

While a wellness holiday is relaxing no matter where you go in the UK, a few locations stand out from the rest.

England

With undulating hills and pristine powdery beaches, England speaks for itself.

Yogis flock here from around the world to nourish their souls in unique natural landscapes.

Choose from silent retreats beside the sea in Devon, or escape on a weekend getaway in Oxfordshire and North Yorkshire's magical gardens.

Wales
Moving to the west, Wales is another fantastic location for a meditation retreat.

From Carmarthenshire's picturesque hills to the idyllic landscapes of Powys and Pembrokeshire, it's the perfect place to unwind and let your mind wander.

Ceredigion also promises a peaceful break with an abundance of outdoor reflection areas in the local gardens and woods.

Scotland
Meditating in the wild Scottish mountains is an experience like no other.

The serene sites of Aberdeenshire are popular meditation grounds and have been known to give yogis a greater sense of inner peace.

Whether drifting into deep relaxation on the beach or awakening your senses on a nature walk, Scotland is a sanctuary for the mind.

When to visit the UK

The UK is delightful any time of the year, even during the dreary winter months.

That said, meditation retreats often include a number of rejuvenating outdoor activities that are more enjoyable in summer and spring.

If you'd much rather meditate in nature without a warm jumper, then we suggest booking your retreat in Spring or Summer (March to August) when the days are balmy and blissful.

Towards the end of the year, there are also many autumn and winter retreats that are perfect for those who enjoy crisp morning meditation sessions and ice-cold nature swims.

What to do in the UK

Although brimming with some of the best meditation retreats, the UK is also renowned for its replenishing outdoors activities and attractions.

If you're searching for a healing and restorative experience here, then these sites are a must!

  • Hike to the Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland.
  • Cross paths with the Seven Sisters in East Sussex.
  • Meditate beneath the magical rockface of Malham Cove in North Yorkshire.
  • Fall into deep relaxation atop the dramatic cliff edges of Cheddar Gorge.

How to get around in the UK

Travelling around the UK is super simple and affordable!

With buses operating in all major towns and cities, it's an ideal option for budget travellers who aren't on a tight schedule.

The UK also has an impressive railway system with most stations operating 24/7.

If you're looking for the fastest way to travel between cities, the sky is your best bet!

There are over a thousand domestic flights each day in the UK, but be sure to book in advance to avoid delays and disappointment.

We should mention that flying locally can be a bit pricey, so remember to factor this added expense in when determining your yoga retreat budget
