Freemasons' Hall in London is the headquarters of the United Grand Lodge of England and a meeting place for the Masonic Lodges in the London area. Built between 1927 and 1933 in the art deco style to the designs of architects Henry Victor Ashley and F Winton Newman, the building is a memorial to the 3,225 Freemasons who died on active service in WW1. With a monumental classical exterior and extensive use of mosaics, stained glass, decorated ceilings and dramatic lighting inside, the Hall has been used as a filming location for TV and film productions including 'Sherlock', 'Spooks', 'The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy' and in the music video for Westlife's Mandy.
For Open House London 2014, Freemasons' Hall will be open on Saturday September 20, 10am-5pm, with last entry at 4.30pm. Visitors will be able to access the Grand Temple and ceremonial areas of the Hall.
