Pass through the doors of 60 Great Queen Street and you’re walking into history. Freemasons have met on this site since the late 18th century. The current Freemasons’ Hall is one of the few Art Deco buildings in London still used for its original purpose. Join one of our free guided tours to discover the story of freemasonry and Freemasons’ Hall for yourself.

Museum Tours

Beginning with an introductory film in the Kent Room, an active lodge room still used for meetings, the tour will navigate the Three Centuries of English Freemasonry exhibition based in the North Gallery. Here everything has a meaning and your guide will reveal the significance of the symbols you encounter. With each display you will travel through time learning how freemasonry has evolved and inspired.

Please note that this tour does not include the Grand Temple or any ceremonial area beyond the Museum. Those areas are included in the Freemasons' Hall tour.

Tours are free and begin at 11am, 12pm, 2pm, 3pm and 4pm, and usually last around an hour.

You can book online for up to six people, up to a month in advance.

Cancellations

Freemasons’ Hall is a busy place and is used regularly for masonic meetings, filming and private events. When it isn’t being used for these things we offer public tours of the building. Occasionally we have to cancel tours at short notice when Freemasons’ Hall is needed for other things. If this happens, we’ll contact you and give you as much notice as possible.

Amazing building, beautiful interiors with a lot of history. The mosaic ceiling is something to behold.
