Event description
Featuring our remarkable 12th-century crypt, this tour reveals the early history of the Order and its fate at the hands of King Henry VIII.

About this event

Just beyond the walls of the ancient City of London, the Order's Priory was a vast and prosperous estate established as the English headquarters of the religious military order known as the Knights Hospitaller. This tour will take you into the church and underground to the remarkable twelfth-century crypt where you will uncover the history of the Order of St John from its origins in Jerusalem through to its dissolution at the hands of King Henry VIII.

Tours will last 45 minutes and you will be able to visit the Museum galleries at St John's Gate following your tour. This tour does not include the historic rooms upstairs at St John's Gate. If you would like to visit them, please also book onto our other guided tour, St John Ambulance: A Victorian Masterpiece.

A large part of this tour will take place outside so please dress appropriately for the weather.
