Freemasons Hall Manchester
The Freemasons Hall on Bridge Street, Manchester was completed and opened in 1929. It became the new home for Freemasonry in Manchester following the move from the original Freemasons Hall which was located on Cooper Street, Manchester and designed by the architect, William Mangnall and opened in 1863. Even now your can see fine examples of Freemasonic carvings within the building and the square and compasses over the front door of what is now called Waldorf House.
The “new” Freemasons Hall in Manchester is a grand building that is the home of 42 Freemasons Lodges which all meet and dine there on a regular basis. Until recently it was the headquarters of the Provincial Grand Lodge of East Lancashire but retains a key role within Freemasonry in Manchester.
Boasting impressive Lodge rooms spanning over 4 floors it has become a much sought after location for many non masonic functions and business meetings. It also continues to be a well known location for TV and Movie filming.
As time moves on and peoples requirements change, Freemasons Hall Manchester has moved with the times and is currently being redeveloped as the premiere conference centre for the city. It’s location on the edge of the cosmopolitan Spinningfields area and a stone’s throw from Deansgate, it is perfectly placed to service the growing needs of the business community and open this historic and beautiful building to more public usage.
Freemasonry at Freemasons Hall Manchester continues to thrive and all 42 Lodges will continue to meet and dine there.

At King Edward The 7th Lodge, we see ourselves as being a progressive and friendly body of men who enjoy talking to people about Freemasonry and explaining why we enjoy it so much.
There is a common misconception that you have to be invited to join Freemasonry by another Freemason, but this is just not the case. We welcome enquires and membership requests from men who have previously had no direct contact with Freemasonry and have a general interest in the work that we do along with wanting to be a part of a wonderful and global society.
If you have an interest in Freemasonry in Manchester and would like to speak to one of our members we would be more that happy to make arrangements and accommodate you. The first thing to do is send us a confidential email with your contact details and a short message so that we can organise a meeting and talk things through with you. All of us at King Edward The 7th Lodge found that talking through Freemasonry with a member was a great help in making the decision to join.
