Freemasons Hall London

Freemasons' Hall in the Covent Garden area of central London is the HQ of the United Grand Lodge of England. A lodge has been present on Great Queen Street since 1775. The present building is the third to stand on the site and was built between 1927-1932 to honour the over 3,000 freemasons killed in the First World War.

Freemasons' Hall was designed by British architects Henry Victor Ashley and F. Winton Newman. It is a Grade II Listed Building and considered an art-deco jewel of London's architecture.

Freemasons' Hall contains the Grand Temple and 23 other masonic temples, all of them done in differing styles of decoration. The building also holds a library and museum which hosts frequent exhibitions. The building has often been used in the making of TV dramas and films.
