Getting Here:
Amitabha KMC is located half way up Gloucester Road, directly opposite “St Michaels Church”. 
Coincidently, there is another Buddhist Centre almost directly opposite us. We are two different organizations, though people tend to get us confused because we are so close to each other.
We are very lucky to have a great bus service along Gloucester Road, the 75 & 76 runs every 10 minutes from the Harbourside & Broadmead all the way up Gloucester Road. The 73 will take you all the way from Bristol Temple Meads Train Station to Amitabha KMC. 
If you’re travelling North along Gloucester Road by bus, there is a bus stop just opposite us, outside Dev’s Take-Away, you would need to then cross the road and walk a few yards down the hill to get to us.

If you’re travelling South along Gloucester Road by bus, there is a bus stop on the correct side of the road, just after Kelvin Players Theatre. If you get off here you would walk a few steps north and then turn to go up our drive.


If you are travelling by car we recommend using free parking spaces around Brynland Avenue or Nevil Road.

    I have just been accepted as a trainee in Religious Education for KS3/4 – our Yr8s have to ‘cover’ Buddhism as part of their curriculum, although i know some very basic aspects of Buddhism it would be disingenuous of me to attempt to teach with the little knowledge i have. I wondered whether it would be ok to come along and visit your centre during the summer holiday and meet someone who could help me understand Buddhism better. We are asking the children to understand the character of the Buddha’s early life and interpret teachings and stories (ie Injured swan). Are these stories meant to be literal or purely symbolic.. for instance Sorry for the ramble…

  • Hello – Namaste

    I am currently looking for a suitable room to hire for my spiritual healing practice. I also incorporate restorative yoga practice into my healing. Do you have a suitable room available at all?

    Many thanks
