The Secret Life of John Wesley
The Museum of Methodism is opening its doors to give people the chance to learn more about John Wesley and what life was like in 18th century Islington.
There will be baking down in the kitchen to taste, Wesley will be in his study and Betsy the Housekeeper can tell you all about life in the house. There will also be pomander making using herbs from the Physic Garden, plus children can get dressed up and complete a house trail.
The Museum of Methodism tells the history of Methodism and its contribution to shaping Britain’s political and social history. John Wesley’s House stands next to the Chapel. It was his home for over a decade and is one of the finest surviving small Georgian townhouses in London.
