  • Madhyamaka was the 1st Centre established by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso over 30 years ago. You can feel his blessings everywhere!
  • Gen Togden is the Resident Teacher, with 25 years of experience in our Tradition teaching throughout the world.
  • We have three meditation rooms, including one dedicated to Dorje Shugden.
  • The main building, Kilnwick Percy Hall, has history dating back to 1574. We’re near York, a city founded by the Romans in 71 AD.
  • Beautiful grounds for walks in the woods or around the lake, and even an old church!
  • A pleasant World Peace Café and The Wolds Retreat (comfortable B&B accommodation).
  • A strong Sangha community with 26 residents and many other long-term Kadampas who live in the vicinity of Madhyamaka.
  • We are located in Yorkshire, northern England, only three hours away from Manjushri Kadampa Meditation Centre. This makes getting to International Spring and Summer Festivals very easy and inexpensive.


IMPORTANT NOTICE for non-EU visitors: A tourist visitor visa to the UK is valid for a maximum of six months. If you plan on attending Summer Festival – and possibly a post-Summer Festival retreat in the UK – please keep that in mind to make sure your total stay is within the six-month limit. For example, you could be in the UK from mid-February to mid-August to be able to take part in “The Madhyamaka Experience”, attend the International Spring and Summer Festivals at Manjushri KMC, and attend a post-Summer Festival retreat at Madhyamaka or at another UK Centre. What an incredible experience that would be!
