John Wesley’s New Room

John Wesley’s New Room

The oldest Methodist building in the world - now host to a museum and regular gigs.

Live music in the candlelit environs of John Wesley’s New Room is an experience you won't forget. A guaranteed intimate, escapist evening in an 18th century chapel, a whole world away from the buzz of Broadmead shopping frenzy surrounding it. During the day you're welcome to explore the historical chapel, museum, cafe and library in one the most spiritually important buildings in Bristol.
