Charles Wesley's House

John Wesley's younger brother, Charles, his wife, Sally, and their children lived in this Georgian townhouse 1766-1771, while Charles worked as pastor to the Methodists meeting at the nearby New Room. They moved to London to benefit Charles' two sons' musical careers, and for Charles to be able to preach and minister more in London.

Visitors can see rooms and the garden arranged as they are believed to have been in the 1700s, including the study where Charles wrote some of his 7,000 hymns. In St James' churchyard nearby is the grave of six of Charles Wesley's children.

£5 per person or £8 when combined with tour of The New Room
