Your Visit

We are delighted that you would like to visit Epworth Old Rectory. You can be assured of a warm welcome. All visitors receive a guided tour led by a trained guide. Tours usually take around 1 hour. The guides will show you around the house and tell you the stories of the Wesley family. Please feel free to ask questions. If there are more than ten people in your group, please contact us in advance to book in. Children have the opportunity of dressing up in 18th century costume for the tour. Please ask your guide at the start of your tour.
