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.

If you are a UK tax payer, we can reclaim tax on your admission charge. However the tax system demands that we charge an additional 10% above the admission price in order for the admission charge to qualify for gift aid. If you wish to gift aid your admission, please ask for a form when you pay your admission. Thank you.

Commercial photographers and film crews are asked to contact the Rectory office if they wish to carry out photography or to film at the Rectory.
Access. Improving access to the Old Rectory is a major priority of the development project. Currently the grounds are accessible for wheelchairs, there is a disabled toilet, and parking can be arranged close to the house. The shop is also accessible. There is a ramp available to the front door of the Old Rectory and the ground floor is accessible, though there are some small changes of level. Unfortunately at the moment, the first and second floors of the house are not wheelchair accessible. There is a reduced admission charge for those who are unable to access the upper floors of the house. Guide dogs are welcome. Our guides will adapt the tour of the house according to the varying needs of all visitors.
