5 of the Best Places To Meditate In Brighton

Published On September 3, 2014 | By Sussex Meditation | Best of Brighton

Whether you’re a novice or a well-rounded master, Meditation in Brighton is available to all of us and the town offers many places where you may find your own little piece of tranquility. Here we list our favourites with everything from beaches to libraries!

Meditation BrightonBrighton and Hove Beach

As many of you Brightonians will already know, the further you go East or West from the central beach it only gets quieter. During the day you will usually find a more peaceful environment the closer you move towards Kemptown, or at the end of Hove promenade. But let’s be honest, there is nothing like being the first one on the beach early in the morning. Brighton has a beautiful (if somewhat stoney beach) that’s the perfect location for your morning meditation ritual. But now we’re nearing the end of summer make sure you bring an umbrella and something soft, those pebbles can cause quite a few problems!

Meditation BrightonSt. Ann’s Well Gardens 

St Ann’s Well Garden is a real haven of peace that you should not miss. Located in Hove it’s a natural place for trees and wildlife lovers, located only a short walk from the beach. Made famous by its invigorating natural spring (supposedly one of the finest in Europe) you can find a secluded, quiet corner to enjoy a nice and relaxing moment of meditation. The accompanying tweets from the birds, the rustling of leaves and the slurping of tourists drinking the rejuvenating spring water, will also save you the cost of downloading a meditation soundtrack!

Meditation BrightonSt Bartholomews Brighton

There’s nothing quite like a church to immerse yourself in the ambience of peace and calm. Even if you’re not particularly religious, Churches (much like libraries) instill a sense of serenity that immediately lowers the blood pressure and helps promote feelings of comtemplation. St Bartholomews has the highest naves in Europe, a number of beautiful paintings ornamenting the perimeter, all combining to provide an unforgettable experience. Churches hold years of history that have this mystical impact on us that is difficult to neglect. Meditating in such an environment is a great way to unwind, or simply to try something new and different.

Meditation BrightonJubilee Library 

Who said libraries were only dedicated to books? There is arguably no better place to find quiet and focus your concentration than a studious, local library.

Find a nice spot on the comfy pink sofas (a bit further past the children area) where you will get all the zen you need. Otherwise, you will find quieter areas upstairs with a few single desks and restful chairs.

Meditation BrightonDevil’s Dyke

We could not have concluded this selection without mentioning this oasis of calm. Give yourself a healthy and spiritual treat climbing up to this stunning spot overlooking the Dyke valley and you will feel more rejuvenated and empowered than ever. Not only is the view amazing, but you will also find all the tranquility you need. There is a large stretch of grass that’s free of people for much of the time where you can sit down, close your eyes and get away from the hustle and bustle of the City centre.
