Museum of the Order of St John, EC1M

The Museum of the Order of St John

The Museum of the Order of St John is a hidden jewel in the City of London, where evocative buildings dating from the twelfth and sixteenth centuries provide an extraordinarily special venue for corporate, charitable and private events, including Civil Ceremonies.

Accessed from a discreet door under the vaulted sixteenth century arch of St John’s Gate House, the galleries of the Museum are modern spaces providing a sophisticated setting for lectures, receptions and small private parties.

Concealed within the Tudor buildings of St John’s Gate, the Chapter Hall is known to only a few. Reached via the impressive seventeenth century staircase in the East Tower and an inviting anteroom with an Elizabethan fireplace, the high-ceilinged hall has oak vaulting and panelling, heraldic stained glass and a large chandelier from the Borghese Palace. It provides an incomparably atmospheric setting for exclusive entertaining, receptions, dinners, or corporate events, it is also licensed for Civil Cermonies.

The elegant garden of St John, featuring fragrant and healing plants and a small fountain, stands next to the Grand Priory Church. It may be used with or without a marquee for receptions, lunches, dinners and corporate events.
