The Museum of Methodism tells the history of Methodism from John Wesley to the present day and its contribution to shaping Britain’s political and social history.

You will find hundreds of objects to look at and trails to complete. The Activity Corner features fun things to do for families as well as Museum Explorer Backpacks to help you discover our collection.

John Wesley’s House is a rare Georgian townhouse where you will discover how people lived over 200 years ago. It was John Wesley’s home for more than a decade and is one of the finest surviving small Georgian townhouses in London. Guided tours are available on request.

Standing next to John Wesley’s House is the Chapel where you can enjoy peace and quiet and our beautiful stained glass windows.

Open Monday to Saturday, 10am to 4pm. Free entry.
