Visitors are amazed by the unimagined treasures concealed behind the enigmatic exterior of St John’s Gate.  Built in 1504 as the ceremonial entrance to the mediaeval Priory of St John, its long and chequered history is closely linked with Henry VIII, Elizabeth I, William Shakespeare, Samuel Johnson, William Hogarth and Charles Dickens.

All who enter are captivated by its extraordinary history, atmospheric rooms and stunning decorative details.  Any function, whether it be corporate or social, may be combined with a private tour of the historic buildings and the galleries.

From meetings, concerts and lectures to receptions, recitals and dinners, events at the Gate are special from the start.
