This gem of a place is hidden in the busy shopping centre called Broadmead. It's a beautiful tranquil building and working chapel - all welcome. The rooms upstairs are set out how John Wesley had them when he was in Bristol and there's a small book shop and souvenir shop too. You can walk round the pulpit and up into... More

Arrived just after a lunchtime concert which was a shame. Lovely building with unusual layout. Set off the main shopping area. A peaceful oasis.

In the middle of the dreary 60's shopping centre this wonderful chapel nestles and lives. A delightful building - peace and a very spiritual feeling

Steeped in history, 1739, but not easy to find - it is close to the Arcade entrances. As much a heritage as a religious building. No charge but one can donate. Also displays upstairs BUT the stairs are not easy - no lift, it's a listed building !

Visited with my 14 year old and a 4 year old. Really glad we came. Of course we are christians and have read quite a bit about John Wesley. So visiting the house where he stayed in Bristol was a treat. Even my son said he is just in awe. To know that once this great man, who was just... More

Slap bang in the middle of the Broadmead shopping centre between Anne Summers and the Carphone Warehouse, (and round the corner from my office). The Chapel has benches in the courtyards front and back where you can get away from the crowds and eat your lunch. There are benches (well, pews) inside too, but the volunteer staff might frown on...

Hard to describe, but even as an atheist one can sense the deep spirituality emanating from this early, stripped down Methodist Chapel & lodging rooms. It only takes half an hour to wander around, & to stand in the pulpit, but it's well worth getting a glimpse into fundamental worship of yore.

Almost hidden away in Broadmead, near the Mall. This is the original John Wesley Chapel and certainly takes you back in time. Original clocks and clothes in his small bedroom.
