This conducted tour for alumni includes the home of eighteenth century founder of Methodism and anti-slavery campaigner John Wesley, the chapel he built in the eighteenth century sometimes called the Cathedral of Methodism, his grave and the Museum of Methodism.
The house may present some mobility problems, but everything else is accessible. After the tour, we can also visit Bunhill Fields across the road, the Nonconformist burial ground where Blake, Bunyan, Defoe, and Susannah Wesley (mother of John and hymn writer Charles) are interred.
Wesley's Chapel is on City Road, EC1. The nearest tube is Old Street on the Northern Line - use Exit 4. The Chapel is also in reasonable walking distance of Liverpool St and Moorgate. We meet in the Chapel entrance at 10.15am for a 10.30am start. There is no fixed charge but a minimum donation of £3 is invited. Bookings by Thursday August 23. For further details of the event, and to register your interest, please contact Peter Dawe.
