Welcome to London Lodge No.108 and thank you for visiting our website. Freemasonry is one of the world’s oldest and largest non-religious, non-political fraternal and charitable organisations, dating in its origins to the early 18th Century. London Lodge was founded under Warrant No.254 dated the 16th January 1760 aboard HMS Vanguard in Portsmouth Harbour. Although we were the first English Lodge to be established aboard a Man of War, our Lodge has resided in London since 1768 and London continues to be its home to the present day.
Our Lodge currently meets five times a year at Mark Masons Hall in St James’s Street in the heart of Mayfair, London. Whilst proud of our Royal Naval origins and long history, our Lodge is forward looking and welcoming of members from all walks of life. We have an active membership all of whom are bound together by a strong fraternal bond seeking to combine the best of our traditions with new ideas to further the goals of Freemasonry.
We have an intimate membership who reside in London, the Shire Counties as well as various overseas locations, all of whom embrace the spirit of Freemasonry, combining traditional ceremonies, festive board dinners and charitable endeavours. Our members carry a strong sense of civic duty and social responsibility, along with an intrinsic willingness to contribute in whatever way they can. Purposeful in our charity raising and attentive to good ceremony and protocol, we also strive to have fun in everything we do both at our meetings and through other regular events such as our annual Ladies Festival, summer dinner and other like-minded social events throughout the course of the year.
We warmly welcome enquiries from anyone with an interest in what we do. Please do get in touch if you are interested in joining Freemasonry, if you are already a Freemason looking to visit our Lodge or if you are thinking about becoming a member.
