With its 6.5 acres of lawn, gardens, river, orchard and woodland, Runcton Manor is a great place to unwind and recuperate.

Less than two miles south of Chichester, we offer Quiet Garden mornings on the third Wednesday of most months.

Arrive any time after 10.00 am for a 10.30 start. The morning involves a short introduction to Christian meditation followed by 20-30 minutes’ meditation. After that you are free to walk in the grounds, read, paint, draw or walk the labyrinth. At 12.20 we have a short time during which we share (or not) what went on for us during the morning. We welcome people of all faiths and none. Don’t worry if you have not meditated before. It is simple and we will give some guidance.

If you want to stay on for a shared lunch you are welcome to do so. This normally consists of a simple vegetarian soup and whatever food (bread, cheese, fruit etc) people bring to share. You are not expected to bring food to share on your first visit.

Dates for the rest of 2017 are:

Wednesday 20th September

Wednesday 18th October

Wednesday 15th November

There is no Quiet Garden morning in December, January or August.
