Welcome to Charles Wesley’s House, 4 Charles Street, Bristol


Charles wrote in his journal: “I passed the hour of retirement in my garden and was melted into tears by the divine goodness.” (2nd September 1749)

The garden is a peaceful space in the middle of the bustling city centre. There are paved pathways lined with herbs like lavender which give off a soothing fragrance. On the far wall there is a sundial (pictured below). This was built by David Brown and placed on the wall in 2000.

If the sun is shining, then the notch on the arm throws a shadow on the dates of the Charles’ birth, conversion and death, and follows the relevant red line.
