About the Museum of the Order of St John

Houses in an old stone gate house, the museum tells the dual story of the old military order of St John, and its ongoing off-shoot, the medical charity, the St Johns' Ambulance.

The collections of artifacts from the history of the Order of St John are extremely varied, covering all aspects of the history of an Order founded in the eleventh century and operating in most European countries.

The St John Ambulance has a history spanning over 125 years and covering over 40 countries worldwide. It was founded by the British Order of St John and inspired by the medical traditions of the Hospitallers.

IMPORTANT - Although venues are reopening, their hours may differ from normal, and most now need prebooking before you visit.
