The Secret Life of John Wesley

May 24 / 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Free

We are turning back time here at John Wesley’s House!
Find out how people lived in 18th century London by speaking to our re-enactors inside the house. We will have baking down in the kitchen for you to taste, Wesley will be in his study and Betsy the Housekeeper can tell you all about life here. There will also be pomander making using herbs from our Physic Garden!

Experience the everyday life inside a Georgian upstairs and downstairs inside a Georgian London townhouse for free! Find out more about who John Wesley was, how he helped the poor and find out what chores Betsy and the Cook had to do every day in the house. There will also be an opportunity for children to get dressed up and complete our house trail!

“We will be opening the front door to the public and giving them the experience of meeting characters dressed up as real people who lived here and find out what their life was like.”- Aisha Al-Sadie, Learning and Community Engagement Officer.
