Lovely friendly staff who are very informative and take the time to tell you so much. I visited this place November 2015, they had already shut for the season but were willing to meet me by appointment and show me around the place when I came to stay in the area. This place is a must visit. Have a look... More

The atmosphere is this building genuinely reflects the early This historic building reflects Quaker days of William and Ann Penn who are both buried here. He as Founder of Pennsylvania met and was greatly influenced by the John Milton of the famous poet and parliamentarian. Milton’s Cottage is nearby in Chalfont St Giles.

Had an inquisitive stroll and was encouraged to come in and have a look by one of the Quakers. Not a huge amount to see but fascinating and friendly never the less.

I visited Jordans Meeting House in a group and immediately we were greeted by a charming lady who explained about quaker tombstones and then gave a history of quakers throughout the ages. The main features of this building that struck me was that you do not need adornment to feel a great sense of peace. A fascinating insight into a... More

Really enjoyed a visit to this extremely Old Meeting Hall. The Hall is open for visitors between 2-5pm in the summer. In the garden is the grave of William Penn, the founder of Pennsilvania, and upstairs a small exhibition about his life. A very interesting visit!

First visited more than 30 years ago before the nearly-so-disastrous fire. Finally had the opportunity to revisit in June and were delighted to find that the original, front part of the Meeting House is unchanged, the meeting room itself still redolent of the age of Penn with its 17th century benches and panelling. A very moving and spiritual place and... More

My child went to the Quaker Meeting House for a local-walk-to school trip. They learnt about William Penn and the Mayflower and brought there own packed lunches. They sat in the main meeting room for an hour (out of a full school day trip) and then explored. Every time we drive past the Meeting House she tells me a new... More
