Museum of the Order of St John

Museum of the Order of St John

The Museum of the Order of St John is an historic jewel in the heart of London with a range of rooms suitable for a variety of event sizes and concepts. The Chapter Hall is a stunning wood-panelled room flooded with natural light, in which the showpiece is a glittering chandelier from the Farnese Palace in Rome. With furniture dating from the sixteenth century and imposing portraits of British monarchs and Order dignitaries, the Chapter Hall combines beauty and splendour to exquisite effect. 

Dating from 1504 the Council Chamber is an evocative space that has in its time been used as a coffee house and a tavern and continues to house celebrations to this day. The leaded windows are set with beautiful stained glass and the walls panelled with golden plaques to the memory of Knights and Dames of the Order of St John. It is an incomparably memorable space for an intimate dinner or drinks reception.  

The Priory Church is an acoustically perfect setting decorated with paintings and Order banners to create a large open plan space with a sense of understated grandeur. The large windows flood the room with natural light and the altar provides a natural centrepiece.   

Overflowing with flowers and fragrant medicinal herbs, the Cloister Garden is a haven of peace in the centre of London. It works wonderfully for a Champagne reception after a ceremony in the Gate or to greet guests before a wedding breakfast. The Summer brings the Garden into glorious flower but we always discuss a rainy day option, just in case the weather suddenly misbehaves!
