Freemasons’ Hall is the headquarters of the United Grand Lodge of England and the principal meeting place for Masonic Lodges in London. Grand Lodge has been in Great Queen Street since 1775, the present Hall being the third building on the site.
Built between 1927–1932 as a memorial to the Freemasons who died in the First World War, it is one of the finest Art Deco buildings in England, and is now Grade II* listed internally and externally. In addition to the Grand Temple (seating 1,700) there are 21 Lodge Rooms, a Library and Museum, Board and Committee Rooms and administrative offices.
The building is fully open to the public. For further information on our free public tours or hiring Freemasons' Hall please click the buttons below.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE BUILDING WILL NOT BE OPEN OVER THE WEEKEND OF 31ST OCTOBER TO 1ST NOVEMBER. NO ACCESS WILL BE AVAILABLE UNTIL MONDAY 2ND NOVEMBER
Letters Live comes to Freemasons' Hall

Five unique shows were held here, all with the aim of celebrating the enduring power of literary correspondence. Watch their star-studded showreel below to get a sense of just how dramatic a space our Grand Temple can be.
