Walk in Wesley's Footsteps

The founder of the Methodist movement was a man of boundless energy – said to have travelled over 250,000 miles on horseback, preached over 42,000 sermons and crossed the Irish Sea 40 times. We start our walk and the story of his remarkable life at Barbican tube. We see where he went to school and the site of his conversion on 24th May 1738, where he “felt his heart strangely warmed”. We will also visit the site of his first London chapel, The Foundery, and the dissenters’ burial ground at Bunhill Fields. Our 90 minute tour will finish at Wesley’s Chapel where you may wish to visit the Museum of Methodism and John Wesley’s house.
