I was really impressed by our tour guide who was extremely knowledgeable and answered all questions clearly. We were even treated to some music in the Grand Temple! Well worth a visit.

Free tours are available on weekdays to this large central Freemasons Hall. Our guide offered an interesting talk on the history, membership and workings of freemasonry. The vast building houses beautiful art work in marble,tiles and gold leaf.

We attended a special concert here for the 300th anniversary of the Freemasons being "formed". This is a stunning location to visit, with free tours daily. If you like social history then visit!

I was here for a meeting this time while the tercentenary celebrations were on, it was really busy with visitors both local and from overseas, including a 'Widows Sons' chapter from America with their motor bikes.
