Owner description: In the Hertfordshire countryside just north of London, Bhaktivedanta Manor, complete with its farmlands, beautiful gardens and temple is a real sanctuary for the soul. Open all year round to visitors and students of ancient wisdom, the temple offers a great experience with tours of the shrine, gardens and compassionate farm. See the rooms of the famous Hare Krishna guru Srila Prabhupada, to whom George Harrison gifted this iconic mock Tudor mansion. Visitors may participate in inspirational talks, yoga classes, mantra meditation, vegetarian cooking classes and various retreats.

“Peaceful place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2012

I'm not religious...but I've been 3 or 4 times to Bhaktivedanta Manor. I love the peaceful ambiance there...it's a beautiful visit and the monks there are very helpful and happy to share their thoughts with you without being pushy.

“Calm and authentic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2012

A genuine transcendental spot housed in the body of an English mock-Tudor mansion. The food is gorgeous, and absolutely free of charge!! The people are welcoming and have something to share.
