The Freemasons’ Hall has been the centre of English Freemasonry for 230 years. It is the meeting place for over 1,000 Masonic Lodges and is the headquarters of the United Grand Lodge of England, the oldest Grand Lodge in the world.
The art deco building which covers two and one quarter acres was built as a memorial to the many Freemasons who died on active service in the First World War.
The audio-described tour will start in the main entrance through the open doors on Great Queen’s Street. The tour will then take you on a journey up the circular ceremonial stairs through three large vestibules (corresponding to the three degrees in Freemasonry): the Shrine, the Registration and the Assembly. With the opportunity to admire many of the features of the building including The Memorial Shrine and bronze memorial casket before passing through the heavily decorated Masonic bronze doors into the splendour of the Grand Temple.
