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).

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.
i have found pictures never before seen in my attic and artifacts, i was wondering if anyone was interested in contacting me regarding these findings. I do have pictures if anyone is interested.
Go see this great bit of Christian history if you're in Bristol's city center. It's a nice break from the busy city outside and you get to walk back in time to the life of John Wesley. You can go at your own pace, so you won't feel 'stuck' there, but do go; it's worth it.
A nice spot in the middle of the "old" town of Bristol. Nice to stop by and have a lazy coffee/tea. It can be easily missed as it is in between all the top brand shops.
A well kept and interesting historical building used by John Wesley. A fine example of its period and well worth a visit and can be found in the heart of the shopping precinct close to amenities and restuarants.
