The London Lodge is situated in a quiet cul-de-sac just off Kensington High Street. The peaceful green entrance courtyard sets the tone for the rest of the Centre, which we offer as an oasis of gentle, protected space, right in the heart of the Capital. Our work, which is centered around the themes of peace and healing, is based on the White Eagle teaching, but our aim is to ensure that whatever your cultural or spiritual background you will find this respected, our activities accessible, and our welcome warm. One aspect of our inner work is to bring healing to the city of London itself, and thus to serve everyone who visits, lives and works here.
You are welcome to visit the Lodge at any time during the opening hours and to enjoy the peace of the sanctuary areas as well as to attend any activities. Our beautiful Library has a horizon-broadening collection of spiritual books to browse and borrow. The bookshop area at the Lodge stocks the complete range of White Eagle books, posters, CD's and fundraising items. We also have a kitchen and comfortable meeting room available for members and visitors.

Directions and Travel
Travel by public transport is convenient and easy.
Underground and Bus
Underground to High Street Kensington (Circle and District lines). From the underground take 9, 10, 27, 28, or 49 bus, four stops to the Warwick Gardens bus stop, or walk (about 10 minutes) westwards along Kensington High Street, St Mary Abbots Place is one stop after the Odeon Cinema.
Main Line Rail
Kensington Olympia Station is five minutes walk from the Lodge. For visitors coming from outside Central London, using Olympia (travel zone 2) avoids the main London stations (and travelling into central London) and is therefore less expensive.
Most main line routes from the south and west of England pass through Clapham Junction; Southern and Silverlink trains run between Clapham Junction and Olympia (journey approx 8 minutes), usually three trains per hour.
Travelling to us by car is subject to the same challenges as the rest of London.
The Lodge is in the congestion zone by one block: the area west from Warwick Gardens is not in the zone, so the charge is avoidable. The charge operates 7am to 6pm, costing £8, payable online, post and text - TFL: Transport for London, telephone-0845 900 1234, or in person at a PayPoint sign.
Much of the parking on weekdays is restricted to residents with permits. There are a few meters in St Mary Abbots Place, Warwick Gardens, Edwardes Square and local roads for parking, costing about £2.40 per hour. Car Parks are in Warwick Road (one way going north), Russell Road, and Addison Road behind the Hilton Hotel (one way going south). Free parking on single yellow lines is permitted Monday-Saturday after 6.30pm in most local streets and all or half day on Sunday. Please be careful to check restrictions.
