Find a retreat centre

There are hundreds of Christian retreat centres across the UK, providing ideal spaces for individuals and groups to take time out, reflect and retreat all year round.

There are many types of places – from abbeys and religious communities to retreat houses in rural and urban settings – who specialise in providing a relaxing, contemplative environment, and a warm welcome.

Many have programmes of reflective and quiet days and guided retreats throughout the year. Most welcome visitors to just come and take time out with no fixed plan and can help with providing spiritual direction if desired.

Visit the Retreat Association and Association for Promoting Retreats below to find one near you.
