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.

“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
