“Lovely building but closed.”
Reviewed 27 January 2013

We popped along to the Meeting House but unfortunately it was closed. Lovely building though and excellent reconstruction following a fire. We rang the bell (as stated on the door) but unfortunately no-one answered: I guess everyone has to have a break now and again!

“Peaceful and moving”
Reviewed 9 December 2012

The history mixed with the beautiful location makes it worth visiting, especially in the spring, when the snowdrops are out

“Important Quaker landmark”
Reviewed 16 April 2012

Interesting 17C building constructed as a meeting house for Quakers. Burial place for William Penn, the founder of Pennsylvania, USA. Shown round by knowledgeable custodians. The 1950 extension was fortuitously burnt down some five years ago and had been replaced by a much more usable building. Well worth a visit.

“A wonderful place, in a wonderful setting. Well worth a visit!”
Reviewed 24 November 2010

I visited the Quaker Meeting House for the first time in 2010. It is a wonderful place to spend an afternoon, perhaps combined with a visit to Milton's Cottage.

The building itself is fascinating and despite the recent fire there still remains the original brickwork, windows, benches, wood panelling etc from 1688. There's also the opportunity to hang your hat on the same hat peg that William Penn would have done before he address a meeting. William Penn, much of his family and many other renouned Quakers are buring in the burial ground and the staff are wonderfully informative without over-doing it.

There is no charge to get in and afterwards we enjoyed a beautiful walk in the surrounding miles of countryside, taking in the Mayflower Barn en route which is made from the timbers of the Mayflower pilgrim ship.

It is a hidden gem and a very enjoyable place to visit.
