The New Room in Bristol is the oldest Methodist chapel in the world, built in 1739 by the Wesley brothers John and Charles.
Downstairs is the chapel where Wesley would preach and the building (which was extended in 1748) was also used as a meeting house, school and dispensary for the early Methodists.
Upstairs on the top floor is a museum and the former living quarters of John and Charles Wesley and a number of fascinating pictures, papers and other personal items, including John Wesley's bed.
The first floor gallery has an organ and looks down on the pulpit and a clock given to the chapel by John Wesley.
