Year 5 Trip to Bhakdivedanta Manor

28 March 2019
Certain classes / groups

Bhaktivedanta Manor is a Gaudiya Vaishnava temple set in the village of Aldenham near Watford.  The Manor is owned and run by the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON), better known as the Hare Krishna movement, part of the global family of Hinduism. It is ISKCON’s largest property in the United Kingdom, and one of the most frequently visited Radha Krishna temples in Europe. It stands in 70 acres (280,000 m2) of landscaped grounds, consisting of lawns, flower gardens, a children’s playground and an artificial lake that attracts many water fowl.

This centre for Hindu worship was set up in 1973 on an estate donated by the former Beatle, George Harrison.  During our visit, the children will enjoy a tour of the estate, a presentation about Hinduism, a dressing up workshop and a visit to the beautiful shrine.  We will also be provided with lunch.

The coach will leave at 9.15 am and will return in time for the end of the school day at 3.15 pm.  Please do not send any pocket money with your child for this trip as there will be no opportunity to spend it.
