The Quaker Centre has an excellent book shop where you may browse at your leisure, as well as a cafe serving delicious hot and cold food and drinks, Meeting Rooms for worship, conference rooms and other facilities for hire. There is also an online bookshop where you may obtain a wide range of publications. Courses and events are run here all year round, for example Quaker Quest, a course and set of resources for people wanting to learn more about Quakers. See the Links section below.
