As an American Freemason, I can't visit London without making a stop at Freemason Hall. Masonry as it exists today began in London in 1717 at the Goose and Gridiron pub near Covent Garden. The first Masonic Lodge meetings were held in pubs, and the...More

This is not far from Covent Garden but in many ways , a world away. The Freemasons have endured for years as a mysterious society with weird rituals and lofty members. The museum on the site gives you a window on to their goings on,...More

Free entry and if you time it right guided tour. Interesting to see the history of the Freemasons, while the interiors are lovely. A great little distraction in Covent Garden

An amazing building hidden in plain sight and has been used for lots of filming. The tours are absolutely brilliant and very detailed. Tours aren't every day so you need to check before travelling

Had a free guided tour by an amusing guide, then spent some time in their museum, photos allowed. You need to ring and check up what times tours are on each day as it varies.

I don't know a thing about Freemasonry! Came away educated in several ways, most notably about what the organisation does charitably, world-wide. Exhibits include the 3 century history and all sorts of interesting artefacts. The best parts are the lovely library and a tour that...More

Hi, I would suggest you locate your nearest Freemasons lodge in MOROCCO, call in or phone them. Then ask them if you can join them as a member. Hope this helps.
