Wesley's Chapel and House

The theologian John Wesley, one of the founders of Methodism (a branch of Protestantism) who ended his days in the United States, laid the foundation stone of this chapel in 1777. The interior boasts a white and gold ceiling and a tribune supported on seven jasper columns. A Museum of Methodism is housed in the crypt. The preacher's house is rich in mementoes, which include his desk, furniture, clothes, library and kneeler.
