Hidden Gem

Sunday, 01 May 2011

As well as being the home of the United Grand Lodge of England, Freemasons’ Hall is also one of fifty Unique Venues of London available for hire to the general public and one of the most filmed locations in London.
Since 2005, it has welcomed a host of non-masons through its doors, including celebrities, supermodels and film stars. The thriving events business attracts around sixty thousand new visitors each year and seamlessly runs alongside the lodge meetings taking place in all nineteen lodge rooms every evening from Monday to Saturday.
With two and a half acres of sweeping marbled staircases and ornate hand-painted ceilings, it is one of England's finest examples of Art Deco architecture. Each room is unique: the awe-inspiring Grand Temple covers a vast one thousand square metres, with a beautiful mosaic ceiling that took over seven years to complete, while Lodge Room 10 immediately transports you to India with its cooling vaulted stone ceilings and blue and gold fretwork accents. As Karen Haigh, Head of Events, says: 'Freemasons' Hall is a hidden gem in the heart of Covent Garden - once you step into the building you never forget it.'
