The World Peace Café is currently being relocated into the old courtyard area. We have however got a temporary cafe in the main building. There is some indoor seating and some beautiful areas to sit outdoors so that you cabn relax and enjoy the peaceful environment. The lawns offer a great space for children to play.
Enjoy delicious hand-made cakes and scones, organic coffee and fairtrade tea. Choose from a selection of light lunches – paninis, quiches, baked potatoes and salads.
Our aim is to help increase peace in the world by giving all of our profits to projects dedicated to world peace. That’s why we’re called the ‘World Peace Café’.

Kadampa Buddhist Chaplains
In accordance with NHS requirements to safeguard patients, visitors and staff, Kadampa Chaplains subscribe to a system of self-regulation to ensure maximum benefit and safe practice within the NHS and other health care establishments. For as long as our chaplains are part of a chaplaincy team they remain committed to:
Follow the Code of Conduct for Health Care Chaplains (CHCC, AHPCC, SACH, 2nd Edition, 2005)
Implement the Generic Criteria Framework for Chaplains (Entry/Practitioner Levels – Assessors Review 2005)
Develop in accordance with NHS National Profiles for Chaplains (Entry/Practitioner Levels)
Engage in regular Buddhist study and retreat in accordance with the Foundation Programme (FP), or Teacher Training Programme (TTP) of the NKT-IKBU.
Committed to the fundamentals of Buddhism; hold refuge in the Three Jewels – Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha – to distinguish them as a member of the Buddhist Faith.
This structure ensures our Chaplains steadily develop their skills both through their denominational training and development, as well as through other chosen training mechanisms.
Over the years we have developed a good relationship with many NHS chaplaincy teams, managers, patients and visitors. They have commended our work and continue to do so – both individually and collectively. We appreciate these comments and use them to inspire us to continue building on what we have already accomplished.
Our motivation for doing our chaplaincy work is compassion for all, and we have a commitment in Kadampa Buddhism to train in this every day with wisdom, to develop ourselves and bring benefit to others. We are fortunate to have this opportunity and to offer our services of visiting and meditation to the NHS and other health care establishments.
