Can you guess where it is?

I spent late yesterday afternoon and part of the evening in one of the best Art Deco buildings in London. Its decor is so well preserved that it is used as a film and TV location (as well as a social venue) throughout the year.

I always enjoy visiting this building (despite being in the centre of London it is always so quiet!) and the following photographs do not do its exterior and interior full justice.

By the way, can any of you guess where it is?






No prizes will be given if you can name the building ... except that you will have proved yourself very knowledgeable about one of the best kept 'secrets' in London!

PS. To anyone who was with me yesterday, your 'answers' do not count!

  1. It's not the Masonic temple is it?

  2. Freemason's Hall in Great Queen Street, London. It was used for external shots as the MI5 HQ in 'Spooks".

  3. Phyllion,

    Near enough. It is actually the current Freemason's Hall in London, and it was built as a replacement for the former Masonic building that was on the site and as a memorial to all Freemasons who were killed during the Great War.

    All the best,
