Museum of the Order of St. John

This Tudor gatehouse, still used by the Knights of the Order of St John, is an architectural jewel with a peaceful garden.

Standing at the edge of the City of London, the Museum of the Order of St John offers eight stunning rooms dating from the twelfth to the twenty-first centuries, and a secluded garden.

A hidden jewel in the heart of London, the Museum contains some of the most historic and atmospheric spaces the city has to offer, housed in one of the few gatehouses to survive centuries of redevelopment and war. 

Beginning its life as entrance to the Grand Priory of the Knight's Hospitaller, after the Dissolution of the Monasteries it has served as a Palace, Office to the Master of Revels, a Coffee House and Tavern, before being given to the British Order of St John in the late 19th Century. The building’s history is closely linked with Henry VIII, Elizabeth I, Shakespeare, Samuel Johnson, William Hogarth and Charles Dickens.

Today the Museum is a popular venue for both private and corporate events, boasting a union of ancient and modern architecture that is wholly unique.
