The New Room - John Wesley's Chapel
As the oldest Methodist building in the world, this is an obvious '101-Must-Visit' location. The Museum tells the incredible story of the lives of John and Charles Wesley, the early beginnings of Methodism and its relevance today. The chapel is set out as it was in the Wesleys' time, and the preachers' rooms upstairs now contain the Arts Council accredited museum, including John Wesley's private rooms. The New Room is made up of a museum, the chapel itself, a shop, a café, the library & archive and meeting rooms.
In the museum, you can explore 12 interactive rooms which take you on a fascinating journey into the world of Methodism in the 18th and 19th centuries. During your visit you will discover what life was like in Georgian Bristol and how Methodism spread throughout Britain, America and across the rest of the world.
Entry to the chapel is free. Admission charges only apply to the museum.
