Tours

Freemasons’ Hall is open to the public Monday to Saturday and includes guided tours, which incorporate the stunning Grade II* listed Art Deco building, the Museum of Freemasonry and the magnificent Grand Temple.

Freemasons’ Hall is a landmark to Londoners and a building of national importance, which is why it has been granted Grade II* listing. One of the few original Art Deco masterpieces to still be used for its intended purpose, it is the home of the United Grand Lodge of England and the third Hall to occupy Great Queen Street since 1755.

Guided Tours

Have you ever wondered what lies behind the doors at Freemasons' Hall, the London headquarters of the United Grand Lodge of England?

On a tour, you will learn about the history of Freemasonry from the early days of the first Grand Lodge in 1717, to the thriving centuries that followed as Freemasonry became popular across the world.

Your tour guide will describe the journey as you experience the history first-hand through corridors and ceremonial areas before reaching the wondrous Grand Temple, which contains a sublime pipe organ, lavish gilt thrones, brightly coloured mosaic ceiling and mighty bronze doors, each measuring 12ft by 4ft and weighing one and a quarter tonnes.

Our public tour programme will resume in spring of 2022, however Group Tours are available* and can be booked via email.
