We are the office block persecution affinity


Over on the LUP's group blog, we're talking about favourite buildings, ahead of this weekend's Open House Weekend events.

It feels like almost everywhere else is talking about the launch of Dan Brown's new book, though, and the combination reminded me of something: Freemasons. Specifically, Freemasons’ Hall in London, which is an imposing art deco building near Covent Garden, and the headquarters of the oldest Grand Lodge in the world.

You might be surprised to hear that this secret society offers free public tours, but they do, so if Dan Brown's fictional account of Freemason ceremonies has piqued your interest, you can get inside the Grand Temple with no subterfuge required.

Will they let you wear an apron and do the secret handshake?

@ Gorilla Bananas - I wouldn't know: I don't have the right plumbing to join.
