I am going to be visiting London this week, and if time and jetlag permit, I'd like to make a trip out to one of the Thai Forest monasteries. My plan would be to offer dana, share in the meal, and meditate for a few hours before returning to London on the train. Does anyone have any thoughts on whether Chithurst or Amaravati would be more suitable for a day visit?
I am a big fan of Ajahn Sucitto's talks and writing, so, all things being equal, I'd probably lean toward Chithurst. Does anyone have experience getting there on the bus from Petersfield?
Are there any other dhamma-related activities I should consider while I'm in London?
Thanks in advance!
