“Real history hidden amidst Broadmead shops.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

I simply love this place. It is serene and exudes the past like few other buildings. You can almost feel the fervour of early Methodism and hear the prechers and their working class audiences.

Displays in rooms above chapel well laid out -not too much information - just enough to get a picture of the phenomenal work done through John Wesley and his companions.

“an amazing little gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

This is tucked away in a busling shopping area but offers a tranquil place for rest in thier newly landscaped courtyard. A wonderful history to the place is kept alive through the exibits containesd in its lovingly restored interior that has great character. It is loveley that the rooms and garden are open to all to appreciate and benefit from. Well worth a visit

“A hidden gem in the heart of Bristol”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

This is steeped in history. You can imagine what it would be like all those years ago when John Wesley came to Bristol. It is like a time capsule in the heart of a bustling city. It doesn't take long to look around, but it is well worth a visit
