Freemasons' Hall, 60 Great Queen Street, London WC2B 5AZ
Freemasons' Hall in London is the headquarters of the United Grand Lodge of England and a meeting place for many Masonic Lodges in the London area. It is in Great Queen Street between Holborn and Covent Garden and has been a Masonic meeting place since 1775.
The current building, the third on this site, was built between 1927 and 1933 in the art deco style to the designs of architects Henry Victor Ashley and F. Winton Newman as a memorial to the 3,225 Freemasons who died on active service in World War I.
It is an imposing building, covering two and one quarter acres. Initially known as the Masonic Peace Memorial, the name was changed to Freemasons' Hall at the outbreak of the World War II in 1939. The financing for building the hall was raised by the Masonic Million Memorial Fund. This fund raised over £1 million. It is a Grade II Listed Building.
It houses many Masonic meeting rooms the most imposing of which is the Grand Temple and the Library & Museum is a great place to lose yourself for a day!
