Grand Lodge Tours And Masonic Museum

The United Grand Lodge of England has a fantastic Museum which houses one of the world's leading collections of Masonic artefacts on the first floor of Freemasons Hall, London. The museum is well worth a visit. Admission is free and it is usually open weekdays between 10am and 5pm except Bank Holidays. Telephone them first to check availability on 020 7831 9811. They also have a very good Masonic library and reading facilities.

The tour around Grand Lodge is also a must. Tours are generally available during the week between 11am, 12pm, 2pm, 3pm and 4pm. Saturday tours must be pre-booked and there might be a fee. Please ring them first to check availability. The nearest tube is Holborn on the Central line but Covent Garden isn't far.

Just in case you're wondering, you do not need to be a Freemason to visit the museum or enjoy a tour, non Masonic visitors are especially welcome! Grand Lodge is also the best place to enquire if you would like more information generally or would like to join.
