  • This is now my favourite place in London. Great little Buddhist temple. Nicest people. Great if you are after Buddha wisdom.

Which is a nice room for Buddhist devotional practices and a bit of peace and quiet. Sadly, most of the programs are in Mandarin, and you'd need to ask about English programs.
