Welcome to John Wesley's New Room – the Room that changed the world!
Welcome to John Wesley’s New Room - a chapel, a museum, a cafe and meeting rooms – a place where everyone is welcome to explore, step back, take time, reconnect and recharge.
Three hundred years ago, John Wesley started a mission here that sparked a worldwide movement - and his message is still relevant and continuing to change lives today.
This is the oldest Methodist building in the world, right here among the shops in Broadmead. This is the place that completes the story of Bristol. This is the Room that changed the world - everyone is welcome.
The New Room has reopened to visitors and is operating in line with government guidelines

“Worth popping in, even for the sceptic or non believer. Wonderfully calm and peaceful place bang in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city.”Will B
“A peaceful haven in the middle of Broadmead. The history of this place is fascinating. The cafe served the best coffee and snacks and the staff were excellent. It was good to get out of the hassle of shopping into this oasis of calm.”Whittaker1413
“The importance of this venue as the oldest Methodist chapel in the world should not be overlooked. The revamping of the rear of the premises adds an excellent cafe.”John
