Jordans is a village roughly 3 miles east of Beaconsfield in Buckinghamshire and is just five minutes drive from junction 2 of the M40 and ten minutes drive from junction 16 of the M25.

The newly constructed Jordans Quaker Centre offers modern, purpose-built rooms for a variety of users in a tranquil setting of unspoilt Chilterns beechwoods. There are four rooms for hire – ideal for day-conferences, training and business meetings of various kinds. The centre also hosts family celebrations, yoga & movement classes,  coaching & counselling sessions and group retreats. The Russell Room is particularly nice for solo retreatants. The centre is non-residential, but the staff can recommend local accommodation. There is a Youth Hostel with basic facilities next door – about 150 metres down the road.

The Quaker Meeting House – to which the Quaker Centre has been attached – is one of the oldest in the country, dating from 1688.  The Meeting House was an early centre for Quaker activity – indeed, William Penn and members of his family are buried there.

Nearby is the Mayflower Barn, believed to have been built from the timbers of the ship that took the Pilgrim Fathers to America. (Note: the Pilgrim Fathers were not Quakers.)
