Forthcoming eventMuseum of the Order

Friends of Westminster School Tour - Museum of the Order of St John

Tickets £30
Thursday, 15th March 2017 6 - 8.20pm

Artisan Restaurant, Priory Church and the Museum of the Order of St John

A journey to discover the origins of St John Ambulance

Join the Friends of Westminster School on a visit of the Museum at St John’s Gate, and the 1000-year-old Priory, in the heart of medieval London after hours.

The extensive collections of the museum include paintings and illuminated manuscripts, rare armour, a bronze cannon given by Henry VIII, ancient coins, decorative furniture, ceramics, silverware and textiles.

Across St John’s Square from the Gate is the Priory Church, with its twelfth century Crypt. The Church’s Priory Gallery features an exhibition on life in the medieval priory and Clerkenwell through the ages. Come and enjoy the tranquil space and the idea of the medicinal gardens that would have been cultivated by the Knights Hospitaller during Medieval times.

Due to limitations resulting from their Grade I Listed status, some parts of the building are not accessible for visitors with access requirements. The main Museum galleries are fully accessible and are on one level, however, the historic rooms on the upper floors are not accessible for wheelchair users. For access to the Church, wheelchair users are asked to call in advance of their visit so that we can ensure that a member of staff is available to facilitate access to all areas of the Church site, except for the Crypt.
