Woodbrooke Quaker Study Centre
Woodbrooke is different. Many guests remark on the sense of peace that they notice when they walk in the front door, and the warm welcome that they receive throughout their stay. Woodbrooke is Europe’s only Quaker Study Centre, run in alignment with the Quaker values of peace, equality, simplicity, truth and sustainability. We welcome you whether you are from any particular faith, or none. We also offer Bed and Breakfast and conference facilities. If you wish to book accommodation, please follow the link here
The centre offers a bright and airy garden lounge which allows visitors to warm themselves around its wood-burning stove, taking in the views of Birmingham’s largest organically-managed garden while sipping on cappuccinos, lattes or one of a range of Fairtrade teas. The centre offers free Wi-Fi throughout and substantial free on-site parking.
We aim for Woodbrooke to be as sustainable and as eco-friendly as possible. We have a strong record of environmental initiatives and an environmental policy that is informed by the Quaker faith.
Due to the peaceful environment of the hotel, TVs are only available in a small selection of rooms. Woodbrooke’s public spaces are alcohol-free. You will also be able to access a silent worship space, laundry facilities, a games and tv room in the cellar and a Victorian walled garden to explore.
Woodbrooke is ideally located for exploring nearby historic Bournville and a chocolate paradise at Cadbury World! Woodbrooke is ideal as a base from which you can explore all the attractions of Birmingham city centre and the West Midlands, with excellent public transport links nearby.
