Anyone can go to the Freemasons shop. It has the best selection of books about the Freemasons. Take the tour as it is very informative. The building is wonderful.

Went on a tour,group visit Impressive 1930's art deco building and a very interesting tour guide. After the tour,had closer look round and look at the museum and exhibits in detail.Entrance is free,there are no refreshments available and it is best to travel by public transport.

While you are in the area of Covent Garden you should take the opportunity to explore the Freemasons' Hall and learn about the organizations' history.

Staying in Covent Garden

Neighbourhood Profile
Covent Garden
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.
