John Wesley's House
Date of building: 1779
49 City Road
Step back into Eighteenth Century London with a visit to one of London’s finest surviving examples of a small Georgian house. Built by Wesley in 1779, he lived here the last twelve winters of his life, in the summer months he would visit and preach to his Methodist societies round the country. The house also provided a home for the preachers of the Chapel, their families and servants. The house contains many of John Wesley's belongings and furniture, including his electrical machine and his study chair. His small Prayer Room is considered by Methodists all over the world to be the Power House of Methodism.
