Attraction details
Owner description: The New Room in Bristol is the oldest Methodist Chapel in the world (originally built in 1739 and extended in 1748) and the cradle of the early Methodist movement. It was built and used by John and Charles Wesley and the early Methodists as a meeting and preaching place and the centre for helping and educating the needy members of the community. The chapel itself is on the ground floor (where there is also a shop) and is accessible from either the Broadmead or Horsefair courtyards. Upstairs, are the Preachers' Rooms where the MLA accredited museum is located. This contains a unique collection of papers and artifacts and tells the story of John and Charles Wesley and their life and work in Bristol.

“Wonderful bit of history”
Reviewed November 14, 2013

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.

“Peaceful spot in the bustle city center”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

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.

“Up for a Prayer”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

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.
