Transcendental Meditation Brighton
The Transcendental Meditation Brighton course taught by The Meditation Trust is a popular location. We run regular TM courses in a beautiful residential house in Brunswick Terrace on Brighton sea front opposite the Angel, or Peace Statue, on the border between Brighton and Hove.
The houses on Brunswick Terrace are best known for the stunning Regency architecture of the Brunswick Estate. We have beautiful sea views from our teaching house both in the summer and winter.
We also use the Friends Meeting House in central Brighton for follow-up group meditations. The Quaker Meeting House is a famous building directly adjacent to the famous Brighton Lanes and is surrounded by coffee bars and cafes.

If you’re traveling from out of town to enjoy our Transcendental Meditation Brighton course, we’d love to share some tips from our Brighton friends for shops, sightseeing and food:
Take time out from the Brighton TM course
You can walk for miles in either direction from Brunswick Terrace. Going west towards Hove is more peaceful, going east towards Brighton will take you to the more touristy area, especially by the pier but beyond that it gets quieter again. Just inland of Brunswick Terrace is Western Road, which takes you east into the heart of Brighton and west into Church Road to Hove.
If you like walking then there are miles of walks on the Downs to the north. Nearest accessible points are at Devil’s Dyke and Ditchling Beacon.
Other things to see are the Royal Pavilion and Museum in central Brighton, and more locally the architecture in Brunswick Square and Adelaide Crescent/Palmeira Square. The Regency Townhouse museum is at 13 Brunswick Square – open by booking in advance (http://rth.org.uk)
Shops near the Transcendental Meditation Brighton course location
The nearest shop/newsagent/ is 2 minutes away: left out of house and left again (Western Street). On Western Road (up Western Street and turn left) there are a couple of 24/7 shops. Also of interest are I Gigi, independent bookseller, City Books and just beyond a French Patisserie. If you turn right onto Western Road you will shortly come to Taj supermarket (vast range of foods from around the world) and Waitrose. There are also Sainsbury, Tesco, M&S supermarkets almost every other shop. Friends of ours have a rather good gallery and shop called Castor and Pollux, on the seafront beyond the remains of the West Pier. You could also visit the North Lanes for some more unusual smaller shops.
Eating In Brighton during the Course
During time out from the Transcendental Meditation Brighton course you might want to visit a restaurant. In Western Street, one of the best restaurants in Brighton – The Gingerman. Consequently it can be difficult to get into – booking essential. We also like for fish and chips – The Regency. Chinese – China Garden (good Dim Sum on Sunday mornings) and next door, for Indian the Bombay. (These are all around the west Pier area – there is a whole street of restaurants here – Preston Street. If you like Indian food there are also some fine and unusual alternatives – Planet India, Indian Summer, Chilli Pickle all in central Brighton, as are a few vegetarian restaurants, notably Terre a Terre and Food for Friends.
At Seven Dials there is Red Snapper (Thai), Mura Sake (Japanese café style) and Seven Dials Restaurant.
Also worth mentioning are Graze, anything with Ginger in the name (part of the Gingerman group) and the Real Eating Company, and Hove Kitchen perhaps for breakfast and lunch. In central Brighton, Bill’s is an institution for daytime eating, and as such always lively.
