John Wesley's House

Step back into Eighteenth Century London with a visit to one of London’s finest surviving examples of a small Georgian house.

Built by Wesley in 1779, he lived here the last twelve winters of his life, in the summer months he would visit and preach to his Methodist societies round the country. The house also provided a home for the preachers of the Chapel, their families and servants. Discover the day to day running of a small Georgian town house. The house contains many of John Wesley's belongings and furniture, including his electrical machine and his study chair. His small Prayer Room is considered by Methodists all over the world to be the Power House of Methodism.
